Migrations at Tate Britain

31 January – 12 August 2012

Banner_1_Tate_Britain.3261146Migrations is a new exhibition that explores British art through the theme of migration from 1500 to the present day, reflecting the remit of Tate Britain Collection displays.

From the sixteenth and seventeenth century Flemish and Dutch landscape and still-life painters who came to Britain in search of new patrons, through moments of political and religious unrest, to Britains current position within the global landscape, the exhibition will reveal how British art has been fundamentally shaped by successive waves of migration.

The exhibition includes works by artists from LelyKnellerKauffman to SargentEpsteinMondrianBombergBowling and the Black Audio Film Collective as well as recent work by contemporary artists including Lubaina Himid, whose painting Revenge can be seen on the Tate exhibition banner.
