The timeline was originally commissioned as an installation of the concourse walls at Tate Modern, providing a glance at the highlights of twentieth-century art. Art history is shifting and changeable. Forgotten artists are rediscovered, while others, even with fairly solid reputations, can fade from view.
If we had installed the timeline ten years earlier or ten years from now, the list of names might have been very different.
The handwriting by Sara Fanelli, was designed to reflect the dynamic nature of twentieth-century art history, rather than something set in stone. Nonetheless, the Timeline gives a useful road map to the major movements and important artists of the period. Most artists' names appear at the point in history where they first achieved success, even though they might have remained active for decades.
Even thought the time line is longer installed at Tate Modern, this remains a popular and useful reflection on art in the twentieth century.
