Visited Liverpool with the family, we had access to the Tate exhibition as members so went to see 'Keywords' exhibition at the top. First impression was a bit disorientating but some pictures and paintings very interesting . I really like the formal display in Art Culture and Society in 1980s from Anish Kapoor but I think it depends of personal... More

Visited with the family....some of us like modern art.....some don't but it got us talking and surely, that's the point.

We very much enjoyed visiting the gallery having not been for about a year. It was great to see some new exhibitions, all very well organised and curated.

Don't expect anything like the Tate Modern in London. This is quite a small space on three floors. There are modernist pictures by well-known artists -- Picasso, Miro, Pollock etc. as well as special exhibitions from famous artists. When we visited it was Richard Hawkins, an Americal artist. Now I'm not an art critic, but the special exhibition seemed to... More

If you have 20 minutes to spare whilst walking round the Albert Dock this is worth a short stop. The paintings and artwork are well laid out in spacious rooms with some interesting though rather enigmatic exhibits. On the first floor there is a dark cinema with a film of the John Lennon/Yoko Ono Bed in in Amsterdam with the... More

I have visited Tate Liverpool a few times in the past and I am not a huge Art Fan but to be honest this time around I was disappointed. It was the Richard Hawkins: Hijikata Twist and DLA Piper Series of Exhibitions which where on during my visit. This particular thing may suit certain people but unfortunately not myself or... More

I'm more of a classical art person, but I will give modern art a chance. It doesn't help, though, if an exhibition is little more than a stack of newpapers in the corner of a room, and there is little else in that room - or indeed, the whole building. There seems to be space for plenty, but there's relatively... More

And so we decided to have a look. I can honestly say it has been one of my poorest decisions for a while. I fail to see, or understand for that matter, how some of the things there can be classed as ART!!!!!!!! The splatter paintings had no disernable image and could have been done by any kindergarten class, and... More

I am a huge fan of the Tate company in general, and was really surprised when we stumbled across the Tate in Liverpool. Unfortunately we seemed to go just at the wrong moment however. Two floors were closed as new exhibits were being set up, and the other two solely contained modern art. Although I am not averse to modern... More

Although I have visited the Tate in London a number of times, despite living in the North West I had never visited the Tate Liverpool although I had walked past it on visits to Albert Dock. I had wanted to see the Chagall exhibition but was away from Manchester for most of the summer and only realised it was due... More
