Inspired by Music focuses on the influence of music on art in the 20th century and beyond. This was the time when visual artists began to directly address the abstract qualities of music and the ways in which these could be interpreted on the painted surface. As the twentieth century progressed, artists and musicians entered into more collaborative relationships. There are many examples of artists seeking to fuse sound and vision through installation, video work and performance. Other movements have developed art and music in parallel, applying the same rules and structures to the creation of both art and of music. Interactions between the visual arts and pop music have brought such collaborations to the forefront of mainstream popular culture.
