Curated by Tate in the UK and drawn from their prestigious collection, Light: Works from Tate’s Collection celebrates groundbreaking moments from over 200 years of art history, and the artists who harnessed this elemental force through painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, installation and the moving image.
Perfect for primary and secondary students, visual art students and VCE Studio Arts, this major exhibition from Tate reveals centuries of artistic practice and places film in a broader art historical context. Book a self-guided exhibition visit to introduce your students to artworks that range from Turner and Constable to Turrell and Kusama.
Support your students’ visit with Light: Works from Tate’s Collection worksheet designed to encourage active viewing and creative engagement. Please note visitors can use only grey-lead pencils in the gallery.
