British Art Debate has kicked off.
To celebrate British Art and find out what the public really think of
what’s happening in their galleries and museums, the Tate (among other
institutions) are hosting an ongoing range of events and exhibitions. This is a chance to get involved, any
nationality and any age group can join in the discussion and put their view
across. The aim is to find out
where art fits in contemporary British culture.
Sunday 25 July, Tate Britain is hosting Interconnected Echoes - a workshop/
discussion group focusing on British identity in relation to art, using images
from Tate's collection as a springboard for debate. The discussions will be
chaired by artist Matthew Stone, who will put forward the argument that art is
central to society. The Tate are also keen to hear your responses to their collection
and British art in general. As
part of the discussions we will look at works from the Tate collection and ask
audience members their opinions on the works.
between 3pm and 5pm, but feel free to drop in any time while it's happening. Tea
and cake will be served.
