LIGHT: Works from the Tate Collection
July 12 (Wed), 2023 - October 2 (Mon), 2023
Joseph Mallord William Turner, Sun Setting over a Lake, c.1840, Oil paint on canvas, 91.1 × 122.6 cm
Working with a careful selection of artworks from the Tate collection in the UK based on the theme of light, this exhibition traces the original creativity of artists across two centuries, spanning from the end of the eighteenth century to the present day. Included are artists such as Joseph Mallord William Turner, “the painter of light” who was one of the leading British artists of the modern era, master landscape painter John Constable, Claude Monet and other French impressionist painters, László Moholy-Nagy and Bauhaus artists who worked with light using the new technology of photography, and contemporary artists like Bridget Riley, James Turrell, and Olafur Eliasson. Bringing together about 120 works arranged into thematic sections that cross time and space this exhibition examines how artists across generations have been pre-occupied by the qualities and luminosity of light in all types of medium; ranging from painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, kinetic art, installation and the moving image.
