Skirt of the Black Mouth

  • 28 September 2012 — 30 September 2015 *on now

Created by artists Heather and Ivan Morison, Skirt of the Black Mouth is a place for everyone within the south landscape of the Tate Modern Project.

The artists often make works for public spaces that disrupt the rigid grid of the modern world. They use simple folds and cuts to transform monolithic forms, materials and ideas, producing a more unexpected, more beautiful geometry. The resulting structures are intended to agitate and provoke the viewer, but the artists also want people to find hope through this confrontation.

Suitable for

  • Any age

Where

Outside Tate Modern at Holland Street

Collage piece of a furnished room entitled Just what was it that made yesterday's homes so different, so appealing? by Richard Hamilton

Richard Hamilton

  • 13 February — 26 May 2014 *on now

Tate Modern presents the first retrospective to encompass the full scope of Richard Hamilton’s (1922-2011) work, from his early exhibition designs of the 1950s to his final paintings of 2011. This exhibition explores his relationship to design, painting, photography and television, as well as his engagement and collaborations with other artists.

Hamilton is best known for his pivotal role in the birth of pop art, including the groundbreaking installation Fun House 1956. A centrepiece of the exhibition, this immersive room combines images from movie-posters, magazines and art history, and will be shown alongside a print of the era-defining Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing?.

Exhibition organised by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid in collaboration with Tate Modern

Henri Matisse: The Cut Outs

  • 17 April — 7 September 2014

Bringing together around 120 works, many seen together for the first time, the exhibition celebrates the period in which Matisse began ‘cutting into colour’ and his series of spectacular cut-outs was born.

Henri Matisse is a leading figure of modern art and one of the most significant colourists of all time. In a career spanning over half a century, Matisse made a large body of work of which the cut-outs are a brilliant final chapter.

The drama, scale and innovation of these works, made between 1936 and 1954, remain without precedent or parallel. Matisse’s first cut-outs were collected together in Jazz 1947, a book of 20 plates. Copies of the book, featuring a text hand-written by Matisse, are shown alongside the original cut-outs.

London is first to host this landmark show, before it travels to New York at the Museum of Modern Art.

100 Years Later: Conflict, Time, Photography

  • 19 November 2014 — 6 April 2015

Timed specifically to coincide with the centenary of the First World War, this exhibition concerns the relationship between photography and sites of conflict over time, highlighting the fact that time itself is a fundamental aspect of the photographic medium. It will include different perspectives which artists using cameras have brought to the sites they have depicted over different passages of time: from works made a few moments or one day after an event, to those made one year later or 10, 20, 30 and 100 years later. Subjects covered include conflicts from all over the world in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, including key themes of landscape, ruination, reconstruction and the human cost of conflict.

BT series: Hear artists talk about their work

http://www.tate.org.uk/btseries/

The BT Series is a unique initiative for Tate Online which lets you explore works by selected artists and ask about their work.
The BT Series has been developed with BT's creative design and filmmaking team. As exclusive sponsor of Tate Online, BT provides Tate with technological support, online broadcasting and hosting, and develops innovative projects like this.

Online Study Days

http://www.tate.org.uk/learning/studydays/

The study days often relate closely to major exhibitions at Tate Modern or to key aspects of the curriculums taught at The Open University. Each study day is broken into a series of short presentations, which are supported with summary information and suggested further reading. The content will have most value for those with some existing knowledge in histories and theories of modern art.
