21st January 23
On Friday 20th January, our Art, Photography and 3-Dimensional Design pupils from Year 11 and 13 enjoyed a trip to the Tate Modern. This educational visit was designed to inspire the pupils and support the development of their ideas for their externally set assignment. The building itself is very impressive with new galleries and exhibits from the Tate collection. The exhibits ranged from large scale abstract sculptures to delicate line drawings based on the female form. Many of the pieces on display were interactive and our pupils were able to experience sound and light installations as well as consider the decisions curators make in order to communicate at particular theme or narrative.
Emily K commented on how the experience had ‘opened her eyes to what forms art could take and how unexpected some of the exhibits were.’
