Next year the Tate Britain gallery has an exhibition The Vorticists: Manifesto for a Modern World.

"Vorticism was one of the truly avant-garde movements in Britain. The group was named by American poet Ezra Pound, led by the painter Wyndham Lewis and included sculptors Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and Jacob Epstein and painters William Roberts, Helen Saunders and Edward Wadsworth. These artists embraced the maelstrom of the modern world, their movement's name reflecting its position at the still centre of the vortex of modernity."

Gaudier was, of course, the subject of Ken's Savage Messiah.  It is on from 14 Jun– 4 Sept 2011.
