Art Turning Left at Tate Liverpool

Date Posted: 07/08/2013

Art Turning Left, running from 8th November to 2nd February at Tate Liverpool, examines how the production and reception of art has been influenced by left-wing values, from the French Revolution to the present day.

Displaying works by artists including Paul Signac, William Morris, Guy Debord and Guerrilla Girls, Art Turning Left explores how artists across the globe have values linked to the political left embedded in their modes of production and distribution.

The exhibition will demonstrate how key left-wing values such as collectivism, equality and the search for alternative economies have underpinned transformations in the processes of art-making and the reception of art. 

Alongside Art Turning Left, an installation conceived by British artist Olivia Plender, Palle Nielsen and Olivia Plender, will go on display in the Wolfson Gallery.
