Celebrate 30 years of Tate Liverpool through this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition conceived by Ken Simons an Art Handler who has worked at the gallery since we opened in 1988. The display will bring together 30 of his favourite artworks including Equivalents for the Megaliths 1935 by Paul Nash, Phillip King’s large sculpture Within 1978-9, Snow Storm – Steam-Boat off a Harbour's Mouth 1842 by J.M.W. Turner and Figure (Nanjizal) 1958 by Barbara Hepworth. Together the works explore the unseen or mysterious spaces in our world and point to Ken’s particular interest in sculptural and landscape art. Many of the chosen artists have worked directly with Ken, and a number of their works have now become central to the Tate collection.
During the Members Private View there will also be an opportunity to hear from Ken as he leads an exclusive curator tour.
