Malevich at Tate Modern

I’m glad I went to this exhibition, but the paintings themselves did not excite me. I felt that I was there out of academic interest. I was looking forward to seeing the black square painting but was so distracted by the noisy film behind it that I didn’t feel able to stand and bathe in it as I have done with some of Rothko’s paintings.
Malevich’s return to figurative painting after all the suprematism and geometry seemed remarkable. I was left feeling confused – possibly he was too?
