Year 11 Visit to Tate Britain

Year eleven GCSE Art classes went on an educational trip to the Tate Britain. As a whole, our goal was to gather resources and recreate works from the museum that link to our current focus- forces. Each person was looking into their own branch of force e.g. political/ governmental forces or natural forces.

    While at the Tate, we went around the exhibitions in search for artworks that linked to our individual branch of force. For example, I was looking for pieces that linked to forces created by society. I looked into artworks such as 'The Highest Product of Capitalism' photographed by Jo Spence. This artwork explored the lack of space for women in the work force, and this is highlighted by the handwritten sign that the woman in the photograph is holding that reads 'I'll Take (ALMOST) Any Work'. This portrays forces within society, and the way in which women were not seen to be a valuable aspect of society. Another type of force, which was conveyed through an artwork was Paule Vézelay’s Forms on Grey . This piece highlighted gravitational force and the way in which it creates a sense of balance.

Once we had a substantial amount of material, we worked on putting finer and more accurate detail into each of our chosen pieces. Now in lessons we are using our knowledge of the Tate and it's artworks to help us build further and truly understand our topic- force.
