Tate Liverpool Exhibition

Hybrids: International Contemporary Painting

© Sarah Morris

This exhibition brings together eight critically acclaimed contemporary painters from North America, Brazil, Britain and Germany, whose work, although diverse and individual, shares some common concerns in extending the traditions and language of painting.

The work of these artists references film and digital imaging, sampling, graphic design, fashion, urban architecture, comics and photography. They put art historical styles, including Pop art, Post-Painterly Abstraction, Abstract Expressionism and Surrealism, alongside references from their own particular cultures. This diversity gives their paintings the quality of hybridity, and allows an exploration of different cultural and technological concerns.
