Conflict, Time, Photography

  • 26 November 2014 — 15 March 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.

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

Malevich

  • 16 July — 26 October 2014 *on now

Kazimir Malevich (1879–1935) was a deeply radical and influential figure in modern art. His breaking away from century-old traditions of painting and representation coincided with one of the most turbulent moments in 20th century history, from the First World War through the October Revolution to the rise of Stalinism.

This groundbreaking exhibition, the first major Malevich retrospective for almost 25 years, will offer an expansive view of his career in its entirety. The exhibition is based on the historic collaboration of the Stedelijk Museum, the Khardzhiev Foundation and the Costakis Collection, with key loans from public and private collections around the world, including the State Russian Museum and State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, MoMA in New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

Exhibition organised by Tate Modern in collaboration with the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and the Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany, Bonn.

Suitable for

  • Family friendly

Admission

Sigmar Polke: Alibis

  • 9 October 2014 — 8 February 2015

This groundbreaking retrospective of the maverick Sigmar Polke (1941–2010) will explore the full scope of his work. A key figure in the first generation of post-WWII German artists alongside Gerhard Richter and Blinky Palermo, Polke took a wildly different approach to art-making, from his responses to consumer society in the 1960s to his interest in travel and communal living in the 1970s and his increasingly experimental practice after 1980.

This will be the first exhibition to bring together the full range of media in which he worked – not only painting, drawing, photography, film and sculpture, but also notebooks, slide projections and photocopies.

Exhibition organised by The Museum of Modern Art, New York with Tate Modern, London

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 Courses

Tate's new online course on Artists' Techniques and Methods is the first of a new selection of online courses to be launched over the next two years.

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.
