Tate Papers no.29 Spring 2018

This issue features two groupings of papers on very different subjects: one is devoted to the work of the nineteenth-century British sculptor John Gibson, while the other explores the value of practice-based research in various art contexts, from learning departments in museums to creative workshops for young people of different faiths. The two articles that complete this issue are born from research relating specifically to Tate: a study of former Tate director John Rothenstein’s curatorial vision, and an assessment of the material vulnerability of Chris Ofili’s The Upper Room 1999–2000.
