Inspiration drawn from visually intense experience

On Friday 16 June 2023, Year 12 and 13 Design, painting, and sculpture students had a visually intense experience at the ‘Light from Tate: 1700s to Now’ exhibition at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki.

Curated from the collections of Tate (UK) ‘Light from Tate: 1700s to Now’ features nearly 100 artworks by celebrated artists across the globe from the 18th century to the present day.  It tells the story of how light has captivated artists over time and across different media including painting, photography, sculpture, installation, drawing and moving image.

After being inspired at the Toi o Tāmaki exhibition, the students were lucky enough to visit other art galleries to experience their artwork on display.
