Year 8 Explore Contemporary Art at Tate Modern
The Art Department took all of Year 8 on a cultural tour of Tate Modern for our latest Academy Day.
The students visited the new extension – The Blavatnik Building – with its amazing 10th floor viewing platform.
They also spent time in the Boiler House and the Turbine Hall, visiting the exhibitions and workshops available to the public on the various levels.
The students particularly engaged with the varied art and craft practices available in ‘Tate Exchange’ on Level 5 of the Blavatnik Building.
They continued a tour of the building, engaging with contemporary international art of the 20th century, in an intelligent and playful manner.
