Join us for an exclusive opportunity to view the exhibitions, participate in teacher-led interventions and seeded conversations around art and learning in galleries and schools.
You’ll also get a chance to pick up our new resources for the exhibitions and the relaunched Play Ground magazine, meet the Tate Schools and Teachers team, hear about forthcoming programme opportunities and share a drink with colleagues
Coinciding with the third issue of the re-launched Play Ground magazine which takes ground as its thematic starting point, we are framing this evening’s activities around ideas of ‘ground’. The Turner Prize 2014 and The EY Exhibition: Late Turner – Painting Set Free are in many ways archetypal Tate Britain exhibitions, firmly within the territory of the gallery’s remit as the home of British art. Through the course of the evening we will consider the collective ground of the institution; what is Tate Britain’s ground? What territory do contemporary artists work within? How do the different grounds of the historic, modern and contemporary overlap, pre-empt or subvert each other? How does space of the gallery relate to that of the classroom and studio?
We hope the evening provides a space for you to bring your particular educational context to the exhibitions and activities and nourish your thinking.
