PRIVATE TOUR OF CORNELIA PARKER SOLO SHOW AT TATE BRITAIN WITH FRITH STREET GALLERY DIRECTOR CORNELIA BEHR
Join us for an exclusive tour of Cornelia Parker solo show at Tate Britain with Frith Street Gallery Director Cornelia Behr.
Cornelia Parker (born 14 July 1956) is an English visual artist, best known for her sculpture and installation art.
Cornelia Parker is one of Britain’s best loved and most acclaimed contemporary artists. Always driven by curiosity, she reconfigures domestic objects to question our relationship with the world. Using transformation, playfulness and storytelling, she engages with important issues of our time, be it violence, ecology or human rights.
The exhibition will bring together such iconic suspended works as Thirty Pieces of Silver 1988–9 and Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View 1991; the immersive War Room 2015 and Magna Carta 2015, her monumental collective embroidery, as well as her films and a wealth of her innovative drawings, prints and photographs. Some works will spill out beyond the confines of the exhibition and infiltrate the permanent collection, in dialogue with the historical works they reference.
