Tate Liverpool

I went to Liverpool for a long weekend, though this was a trip for leisure, I decided to do visit some museums. I went to the Museum of Liverpool, The Merseyside Maritime Museum and The Tate Liverpool.

Though I did not find much which really inspired me for my current project, I feel it is always good to keep up to date with current artists and exhibitions. In the Tate Liverpool there were three exhibitions running; Keywords: Art, Culture & Society in 1980s Britain, Richard Hawkins: Hijikata Twist and DLA Piper Series Constellations. There were a few artists which really caught my eye in the DLA Piper Series Constellations exhibition..

Jackson Pollock – Summertime Number 9a : 1948

– The colours and style of this piece reminded me of graffiti, which is a current theme in my individual field project of The City

I liked DLA Piper Series Constellation exhibition as it had a range of different specialisms in it, from fine art and abstract conceptual pieces to film art. I didn’t really enjoy the Keywords exhibition, however, I did like the idea of an exhibition based on a book.

In the Merseyside Maritime Museum, we visited the International Slavery Exhibition. I saw these pieces of textiles, the colourful and vibrant colours intrigued me…
