MOST RECENT

Today is J.M.W. Turner's 243rd birthday! J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) is one of the most celebrated artists in British history. The gallery is named after Turner as our work embraces his spirit of radical enquiry. In 1984 Tate established the prestigious and radical Turner Prize, which fulfilled Turner's wish to provide an award for young artists. In 2019, Turner Contemporary will be hosting Turner Prize.

"...my job is to draw what I see, not what I know" - JMW Turner.

Turner was a pioneering, and controversial, artist of his time. He challenged contemporary views on art, and for many he stands at a crossroads between classical and modern art. His work often captured the mood or impression of an event or landscape, rather than depicting a representation of reality. Critics accused him of representing “nothing that ever existed in nature”. Using his imagination, as much as what he saw, set Turner on the path to success. In 1802, age 27, Turner had become a Royal Academician. His first oil painting was exhibited at the Academy’s annual exhibition when he was aged just 21. In 1803 he set up a spacious gallery in his house in Harley Street London to hang his paintings that could not fit in the exhibition room at the Royal Academy. This was an ingenious way to promote his work and build his reputation as Britain’s leading artist of the time. Turner’s biggest advocate, art critic John Ruskin, believed that “We have had, living amongst us and working for us, the greatest painter of all time.” He even published ‘Modern Painters' between 1843 and 1860 to convince everyone of this conviction. Turner’s career spanned the greatest period of social, economic and scientific change that the world had ever seen. Throughout his career, these scientific and technological advances, and how they affected the world and society around him, influenced his work and thinking.

Você sabe o que é arte contemporânea? Caso não tenha lido o post do BIGORNA, aproveite este domingão preguiçoso para entender o que é essa arte de nome supercomplicado. Ou se inspire para fazer um passeio num museu! Link na bio! 📸 Na foto, a escultura de aço ”wt (Extended)“, de Tony Cragg, que ganhou o Turner Prize em 1988. Promovido pela Tate Gallery, o prêmio do Reino Unido é um dos mais importantes no cenário mundial das artes visuais. #bigornart

“Pompoms are so gorgeous, why wouldn’t you have them in your art?! Put onto other materials, they destabilise the inherent qualities. They reduce weight. They float, they land. They’re like dustballs. They’re decorative and intrinsic at the same time.”

All of my kids sit exams next week. I hope they paid attention to Richard Deacon’s monumental sculpture that we enjoyed playing around

Granby Street is a place with creativity on every corner. In 2016, Liverpool Biennial commissioned Turner Prize-winning collective Assemble to create this amazing artwork on the occasion of the International Festival for Business 2016. Afterwards, it was installed permanently outside the premises of @granbyworkshop, a social enterprise collaboration with the residents of the Granby neighbourhood. It uses one of the workshops products, cut-out tiles, and is now a part of the fabric of the neighbourhood.

Very lucky to have seen the exhibition of artists shortlisted for the Turner Prize 2018 at the Ferens Art Gallery in Hull earlier this year

Happy birthday to British artist (and first woman to win the #TurnerPrize) Rachel Whiteread, born #onthisday in 1963! 🎂 Whiteread is perhaps best known for her casts that capture the negative spaces around us.
