DLA Piper Series: Constellations explores connections between major works from the Tate collection across art history by arranging them in nine ‘constellations.’ It presents a complete re-hang of the collection displays at Tate Liverpool, and brings together over 100 artworks created between 1900 and the present day, including a significant number of new and recent acquisitions.
Acting as the originating ‘star’ of each constellation is one artwork that was chosen because of its persisting revolutionary effect on modern and contemporary art. As with the night sky—where the individual stars perceived within a single constellation are actually distant from each other in time and space—each of the ‘trigger’ works is displayed among artworks that relate to it, and to each other, across time and location of origin.
