Tate Liverpool Talk

World Literature Constellation With Liverpool John Moores University

© Tate

A student-led event exploring connections between curation and literature 

How does narrative affect the experience of art? Can literary writing help to rethink curatorial practice? How does the world enter the enclosed space of the art gallery? These questions will be at the heart of World Literature Constellation, a student symposium featuring work from Liverpool John Moores University students.

Beginning with introductions to selected artwork from Constellations: Highlights from the Nation’s Collection of Modern Art, students will suggest creative connections between the Tate collection and world literature. Poems, novels, short stories and essays will produce a new narrative and open up the borders of the gallery to a multitude of voices. 

This talk is programmed by Liverpool John Moores University, a Tate Exchange Liverpool Associate. It is presented by the School of Humanities and Social Science.
