Fourth Form Visit Tate Modern

Senior School
8 Nov 19

On 7th November, the Fourth Form artists went on a research trip to the Tate Modern and the Southbank in London.  Tate Modern houses the United Kingdom’s national collection of British art, as well as international contemporary and modern art.  In the galleries, students were inspired by the range of twentieth century and contemporary pieces on display.  They spent time drawing and responding to the artworks, in order to add ideas to their coursework project.  The ‘Media Networks’ gallery looks at how artists have responded to mass media and changing technologies.  Andre Fougeron’s Atlantic Civilisation, shown here, provided an interesting opportunity for students to collect ideas.  After lunch students were given the opportunity to gather some first-hand observational studies from the Thames and London’s architectural skyline.
