Watch as we take you to the Dark Waters exhibition at Tate Liverpool

2 months ago

By The Guide Liverpool

The prestigious Turner Prize is set to launch at Tate Liverpool this month.

Works by shortlisted artists including Heather Phillipson, Ingrid Pollard, Veronica Ryan and Sin Wai Kin will be on shown at the city gallery from October 20 to March 19 next year.

And from now you can also get to see work by Turner himself in Dark Waters, a stunning exhibition with an amazing new twist.

Forty works by JMW Turner have been presented within an immersive sound environment created by artist and musician, Lamin Fofana.

Although centuries apart, both artists convey the power and politics of the ocean, and combine to create a refreshing new experience.

Speaking of Turner’s paintings, Louise Waller, visitor engagement assistant at the Tate, says: “You go from areas of sunrises and sunsets, snowstorms and sea monsters, all the different conditions at sea that he was so powerful at capturing.”

In Dark Waters, she adds, there’s so much more: “It’s the power of the sea, and the sounds…” 

The exhibition and seeing Turner in a new and exciting context ties in perfectly with The Turner Prize and the artist’s legacy to support young, up-and-coming artists.

The winner of The Turner Prize will be announced in December at a special award ceremony in Liverpool.

You can see Dark Waters until June 4, 2023.
