Friday 12 June
£20 (£30 for two on one email account, to accommodate couples who may be sharing the screen).
Join artist and lecturer Nick Pearson on a virtual tour of his personal highlights from across Tate Britain permanent collection.
The tour starts with Hogarth and Reynolds in the 18th century, moves on to Constable in the early 19th century, followed by the Pre-Raphaelites and concludes with modern and contemporary British artists such as David Hockney (pictured), Henry Moore and Peter Blake.
Nick’s Tate Britain permanent collection virtual tour takes the form of illustrated slide lectures. If you sign up, he’ll send you a pdf with high-resolution images that you can easily flick through on screen, or print out and follow as he takes to the floor on Zoom, with projected images on his studio wall. These projected, filmed and transmitted images won’t be as sharp as those we’ll be sending you on the pdf, but will allow Nick to point things out as he speaks, in an attempt to make the presentation as much like a live lecture as possible.
The two hour tour and Nick’s notes (emailed afterwards) costs £20 (£30 for two on one email account, to accommodate couples who may be sharing the screen).
About the Tutor
Nick Pearson is an internationally exhibited contemporary artist whose practice encompasses sculpture, drawing and photographic work. His simple interventions and appropriations of the familiar things that surround us (made uncanny by way of his approach and working practices) deal with the language, the possible associations and the status of ‘ordinary’ objects. Nick first studied on the Art & Design Foundation Course at Leeds (Jacob Kramer) College of Art and continued his studies at The Polytechnic Wolverhampton and Stourbridge College of Art.
He lectures on modern art and design history and runs other, short art & design units at London College of Contemporary Arts, OPEN Ealing and Richmond Adult Community College.
