Source is an ongoing display curated by Tate Collective London, aiming to challenge the difference between art in digital and reality, questioning how the source and accessibility of art changes it’s meaning. Each month a different theme is chosen, May is the turn of ‘Print, Pattern & Graphics,’ with local emerging artists invited to submit their work online as part of the collection.
These works are to be shown on a digital display, adjacent to ‘real life’ art works selected by Tate that share visual qualities with said theme. One of these being by British printmaker Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, a pioneer of his time, introducing innovative juxtaposition and colourful, pop art styles in his abstract collage work that are still relevant today.
On Saturday 24th May, from 11.00-16.00, participants will join a selection of artists from the studio to explore the process of printmaking and to create a collaborative screen print in response to the Source display.
