Tate Modern fuels imaginations

The sun shone brightly on the Remove Art students, who were armed with packs of pencils and assorted paper, for their visit to London’s Tate Modern. 


Primed and ready for plenty of visual action in the galleries, they saw an enormous amount of beautiful and thought-provoking work by the likes of Ed Ruscha, Peter Doig, Bridget Riley and Yinka Shonibare – to name but a few. Students were amazed to see the work of such prestigious artists in the flesh, responding both visually and verbally to works that, in some cases, were relevant to their current projects. 


There was a real buzz amongst these budding artists all day. Students are currently working on their own artist interpretations and this trip fuelled their imaginations and enabled them to gain a clearer understanding of the Modern Art World.
