Tate Liverpool home for Jackson Pollock show

Date Posted: 10/04/2015

An exhibition introducing pupils to some of Jackson Pollock’s seminal paintings will run at Tate Liverpool from 30th June to 18th October.

Teachers can take art students to see Blind Spots, featuring works from ‘action painter’ Jackson Pollock, at Tate Liverpool during the summer term and the start of the autumn term.

Pollock is widely considered one of the most influential and provocative American artists of the 20th century, whose work has made an immense contribution to abstract art.

Pollock famously pioneered ‘action painting’ - a process that saw him dripping paint on canvases laid flat on the studio floor.

Teacher’s preview evening

On 30th June from 4.30pm to 6pm, teachers can join the Learning Team at the Tate for a sneak preview of forthcoming shows for the next academic year 2015–16.

This year there is also the chance to try out one of the artist’s workshops in the gallery beforehand.
