DLA Piper Series: This is Sculpture
DLA Piper Series: This is Sculpture takes an ambitious and revolutionary look at the history of modern and contemporary sculpture. This new Tate collection display continues to examine and question the trajectory of artistic innovation in twentieth-century art and beyond.
Chagall: Modern Master
Chagall: Modern Master takes a fresh look at this compelling artist who created some of the most poetic and enduring images of the twentieth century.
Marc Chagall (1887 – 1985) is one of the great artists of the last century. His paintings of floating figures and folk themes are instantly familiar, yet he remains one of the least understood artists of his generation. Bringing together more than 60 paintings from across the world, this will be the exhibition of the summer.

Moyra Davey: Hangmen of England
Discover the fascinating photography of Moyra Davey in this brand new commission for Tate Liverpool.
Davey is a New York-based photographer, filmmaker and writer whose work captures everyday objects in new and surprising ways. For this exhibition, Davey presents works created using photographs she has taken in Liverpool and Manchester.
Davey’s seemingly casual images of familiar items, like vinyl records or empty bottles, reveal the innate beauty of these objects and offer an unrushed consideration of the world. Davey’s work encourages the viewer to take a second look at the everyday and see it from a different perspective.
Art Turning Left: How Values Changed Making 1789-2012
Art Turning Left is the first exhibition to examine how the production and reception of art has been influenced by left-wing values, from the French Revolution to the present day.
Art Turning Left is a thematic exhibition, based on key concerns that span different historical periods and geographic locations. The exhibition moves away from the political messages behind the works and claims about the ability of art to deliver political and social change, and instead focuses on the effect political values have had on the processes, aesthetics and display of artworks.
£8, £6 concessions.
Booking is recommended, and can be done by calling 0151 702 7400, or visiting Tate Liverpool's website.
Keywords is a dynamic exhibition and lecture programme looking at how changes in the meaning of words reflect the cultural shifts in our society.
Raymond Chandler’s book Keywords is the inspiration for this exhibition. The book considers the usage, origin and meaning of over one hundred and thirty words which Chandler felt recurred most often in discussions about society and culture.
The exhibition aims to present this book in an alternative format, by representing each word through a collection of artworks and so explore the connections between words and images.

DLA Piper Series: Constellations
DLA Piper Series: Constellations features more than one hundred works, many never seen before at Tate Liverpool andtakes a fresh look at the links between artworks across time and location of origin.
Constellations examines the role of nine ‘trigger’ artworks displayed within groups or ‘constellations’ of other artworks from many periods in art history. The display actively encourages the viewer to consider how the nine works were influenced by or influenced the surrounding constellation of works. The ‘trigger’ works have been chosen because of their continuous and revolutionary effect on modern and contemporary art.
Mondrian: Abstraction into the World
Dutch painter Piet Mondrian (1872–1944) was one of the most important contributors to the development of abstract art at the beginning of the 20th century. This brand new exhibition, which commemorates the 70th anniversary of the artist’s death, provides fresh insights into Mondrian’s practice and explores his relationship with architecture and urbanism.
The exhibition focuses on this connection between painting and architecture after Mondrian’s move to Paris in 1911, with a fascinating reconstruction of his Parisian studio being a major highlight. Visitors can explore a life-size replica of the studio, and physically immerse themselves in Mondrian’s world and work

Chagall Summer School
Chagall Summer School provides a unique opportunity to explore the work of one of the 20th century’s pioneering modern masters. Marc Chagall’s work, suffused with imagery drawn from Jewish ritual and folk art of the past, was also influenced by the emerging avant-garde styles of his day. The course will explore Chagall’s idiosyncratic dream-like creations, with their Fauve inspired palette influenced by his time spent in Paris.
This artist-led course is introductory and participative, taught with a mix of discussion and practical art-making activities. Through talks, one to one tutoring, group discussion and practical art-making the relaxed atmosphere encourages participants to develop their own artistic responses through experimentation.
