Review of Tate Modern

On Wednesday, Year 11 students studying GCSE art visited one of London’s incredible art galleries: Tate Modern. Our aim was to research and explore ideas for our exam unit of ‘Fragments’, and to create an interpretation of four artists’ work.

After arriving at the gallery, we travelled around the maze of exhibitions and artwork to find pieces that related to ‘Fragments’. Amongst them, we saw some of Pablo Picasso’s abstract yet incredible paintings – many involved angular and fragmented shapes, including the ‘Studio’ oil painting. The piece depicts the ‘La Californie’ studio near Cannes where Picasso spent a lot of time developing his work. I was also very interested in Natalya Goncharova’s ‘Linen 1913’, which also uses very linear fragments that come together to portray both the chaos of the 1913 laundry industry, and the separation and division of genders during that period.

After exploring the exhibitions and collecting photographs of appropriate artworks, we went to the balcony area on the tenth floor to admire the 360° views of London. I was particularly interested in taking some photographs of the Shard due to its fragmented appearance, and because I thought it would fit well into my sub – theme of architecture. Then we took some time to develop sketches of our chosen artwork, adding shading and tone. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day and loved the chance to progress as artists and improve our understanding of ‘Fragments’. In lessons, we will continue to build upon the four interpretations, and will use ideas and research from Tate Modern in order to explore concepts that will eventually develop into a final piece.
