Tate Liverpool

Mervin and Slavers throwing overboard the Dead and Dying -Typhoon coming on. After Turner 1840-2000

Tate Liverpool is the home of the National Collection of Modern Art in the North of England and the largest gallery of modern and contemporary art outside London. Tate Liverpool is housed in a beautiful converted warehouse which is part of the historic Albert Dock.

The art shown is by twentieth century artists and is always interesting and thought provoking. This construction of the British National taste is much more than a simple pointer to the biological or cultural sameness of the nation. It is a construction of the British social imagination, mapped onto geographical regions and increasingly technological sites. It is an example of economic power organising itself around the politics of the aesthetic.
