Sixth Form Art Trip to London Art Galleries

Monday 28th October 2013

On Thursday 24 October, the Sixth Form AS and A Level Art, Art History and Photography students visited Art Galleries in London as part of their A level studies in Art & Design.

IMGP0139As the students are all working independently on individual coursework projects and have their own particular requirements, the Queen Anne’s Art department decided to view a wide variety of art work and certainly packed a lot into the one day.

Once in London, the students headed for the Tate Modern permanent collection for personal research related to recent class exercises and lectures. Following that, the art students had the chance to see the work of Paul Klee, possibly one of the most influential artists of the 20th century which was a very uplifting experience and particularly relevant for the L6 students with the focus on abstract colour techniques and the formation  of an individual visual language.

The group then headed over to Kings Road to visit more contemporary work in the ‘Paper’ exhibition which was exciting, inventive and challenging. Here thestudents had a brief talk on a number of key works, which require closer inspection and serious reflection in order to comprehend the idea, such as the somewhat funereal flower arrangement made entirely out of the Daily Mail and pigmented with blood tea and coffee.

Other exhibits were simply breathtaking due to their amazing visual impact such as Marcelo Jacome’s ‘Planos-Pipas’, a massive kite like construction which appears to fly through the gallery. Students could also view work of recent graduates in the New Order exhibition which was equally diverse and exciting extending over 10 galleries.

It was a long day but a very stimulating, enjoyable and rewarding one.
