Willie Doherty, Looking at the View
Tate Britain, London
12 February 2013 - 02 June 2013
Willie Doherty is amonst the artists presenting work in this exhibition which looks at continuities in the way artists have framed our vision of the landscape over the last 300 years.
Coinciding with the re-opening of all Tate Britain’s galleries, the selection finds surprising coincidences and remarkable affinities in the way we look at the view, whether near or afar, high or low, from inside or out.
Over seventy works by more than fifty artists will be included, including familiar names such as J.M.W. Turner and Tracey Emin as well as lesser-known figures of British art history. The exhibition consists entirely of works from the Tate collection and is part of the BP British Art Displays and will be shown until 2 June 2013.
