DLA Piper Series: This is sculpture , at Tate liverpool

On Untill 11 April 2010 leading cultural figures from different disciplines will be displaying their own unique take on sculpture as part of DLA Piper Series: This is Sculpture, at Tate Liverpool.

Transforming the first and second floor galleries are artist Michael Craig-Martin; designer Wayne Hemingway and his son Jack; and artist, director and writer Tim Etchells.

Film director Mike Figgis is also producing a series of short films where members of the public will be filmed responding to works of art from the Tate Collection when situated in unusual locations around Liverpool.

The co-curators’ sculpture displays have been selected in conjunction with Tate Liverpool curators and feature masterpieces from the Tate Collection by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, alongside recent acquisitions of contemporary art by Sarah Lucas, Jim Lambie and Terence Koh, among others.

Speaking of the displays Philip Rooney, Office Managing Partner at DLA Piper Liverpool said: “Great cities need great culture to thrive, and with Liverpool European Capital of Culture 2008 we have seen that culture can be a driver of change for residents, visitors and business.

“The DLA Piper Series: This is Sculpture display builds on the legacy of 2008 and strengthens Liverpool’s position as one of the world’s great cities. Seeing sculpture presented in such new and innovative ways is both exciting and important. The vision of co-curators from different disciplines presents an opportunity for visitors to experience a range of works from the Tate Collection in bold settings.”
