Phillip King @ Tate Britain / Sunday 1st February 2015

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: 10am-6pm

@ Tate Britain, Millbank, London SW1P 4RG

Free

www.tate.org.uk

Tate Britain marks the 80th birthday of renowned British sculptor Phillip King (b. 1934) with a display of six of King’s works from the 1960s in the Duveens Galleries. The display celebrates King’s significant contribution to late 20th century sculpture.

King played a vital role in changing the face of British sculpture through his experimentation with abstraction, construction, material and colour. The display includes key works from Tate’s collection made during the 1960s, including Genghis Khan 1963 and the important loan of Rosebud 1962 (private collection), his first coloured sculpture using fibreglass.

King’s use of innovative materials such as fibreglass allowed him to mould shapes and structures not feasible with plaster or other traditional materials. Influenced by Matisse, he was also a pioneer of colour – describing it as ‘no longer subservient to the material but something on its own, to do with surface and skin’ and used it to bind the separate parts of a sculpture together.

This rich combination of materials, techniques, forms and colour enabled King to create sculpture detached from conventional, figurative ideas. King also deferred from tradition by choosing to place his works on the floor, occupying a space alongside the viewer, rather than on plinths.

For this exhibition, the Rio de Janeiro-based Nepomuceno expands her characteristically dynamic approach to form, using traditional methods of rope weaving and straw braiding as well as techniques of her own design.

The works in TRANS extend the artist’s interest in biomorphic and organic development, and emphasise the interconnectedness of the individual object and its environment.

Exhibited together for the first time, they span over twenty years of Sone’s practice, and occupy a momentous part of his oeuvre.

Lichtenstein: A Retrospective @ Tate Modern / Thursday 21st February – Monday 27th May 2013

TIME AND PLACE

Daily from 10am – 6pm,
Friday and Saturday until 10pm

Previews on Wednesday 20th February

Tate Modern
Bankside, SE1 9TG

Tickets £14, concessions from £6.10 to £12.20, all available here

Co-organised by The Art Institute of Chicago and Tate Modern, this will be the first major Lichtenstein retrospective for twenty years, bringing together 125 of the artist’s most definitive paintings and sculptures.

Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) is one of the central figures of American Pop Art. In the early 1960s he pioneered a new style of painting, executed by hand but inspired by industrial printing processes. He became renowned for works based on comic strips and advertising imagery, coloured with his signature hand-painted Benday dots, as an ongoing examination of representation and originality in mass media culture. It will also highlight Lichtenstein’s engagement with art history, revealing his lesser-known responses to Futurism, Surrealism and German Expressionism. In the final years of his life, the artist went on to create a series of huge female nudes and sublime Chinese landscapes, neither of which have previously been shown within the wider context of his oeuvre.

This exhibition will showcase such key paintings as Drowning Girl 1963 (Museum of Modern Art, New York), shown above.
Advance booking is highly recommended.
