Late at Tate Liverpool: Living Vicariously with Glenn Brown

LONDON Join Tate Liverpool for an evening inspired by the British painter Glenn Brown. Titled Glenn Brown: Living Vicariously, tonight’s event features an exclusive tour of the captivating Glenn Brown retrospective presented by Tate Liverpool curator Laurence Sillars, and a special performance by a.P.A.t.T., a lively and experimental music collective from Liverpool.

Tate Liverpool’s mid career retrospective of the artist Glenn Brown brings together the largest selection of his work to date, including many paintings and sculptures which have never been seen in the UK before. Brown works directly from reproductions of existing works, revealing how often we experience visual art second-hand in the form of photography. The artist mimics, recreates and distorts existing works, conceptually appropriating photographic reproductions and applying his own authorship by manipulating discrepancies. Late at Tate presents a tour by Tate Liverpool curator Laurence Sillars, who worked closely with Glenn Brown during the realisation and installation of the exhibition. Sillars will discuss the exhibition in its entirety, from the vast science fiction paintings of Room 1 and Brown’s skilful appropriation of brushwork in Room 2, to newly presented works in Room 9. A must-see for fans of the artist (and for the curious), the tour promises to be an invaluable insight into the work of one of the most captivating and skilled painters of a generation.

The titles of Glenn Brown’s works intrigue the viewer with pop culture references. Oscillate Wildly, 1999 (The Smiths), Hunky Dory, 2005 (David Bowie), New Dawn Fades, 2000 (Joy Division), It’s a Curse, It’s a Burden, 2001 (The Fall) and Suffer Well, 2007 (Depeche Mode) are key examples from the exhibition. Links between the titles and subjects of Brown’s work are not always apparent, and are often baffling, but almost all nod towards the dark romanticism expressed in his paintings and sculptures. In homage to the pop music references in Glenn Brown’s work, a performance by avant-garde musicians a.P.A.t.T. will take place in the foyer throughout Late at Tate. Performing material from their forthcoming album Ogadimma, whichfeatures music appropriated from other artists, the eclectic 5-piece will span all musical genres in their performance. Expect wild instrument swapping and extreme interpretations of varied styles of music.
