A collection of photograms from Gyorgy Kepes, who helped found the New Bauhaus in America (late 1930s-40s). Beautifully printed originals in which shapes - compasses, plants, aeroplanes - are subverted, taking on a surrealist essence. For example, 'Branch, Knot-hole, String' is reminiscent of contemporary Salvador Dali's 'The Persistence of Memory' (1931). Kepes, apparently, was also fascinated by the confluence of... More

The main purpose of my visit was to see the Leonora Carringron exhibition, I enjoyed it very much as it included many of her drawings and textiles not normally seen by the public and of course her iconic paintings. It was a great pity that there was no exhibition catalogue available and the other offerings were minimal. Well worth a... More

There is a talk for a lot of the painting at certain times. They are really useful in understanding them and art in general. Try and plan your visit around these and it will really add to it.

The tate has 3 free floors you can visit so its nice to pop in here and look at some modern art, visit the toilet or just take a rest. Do not spend to much time here because Liverpool has many more nice free museums you can visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon's visit. What a delight to see Renoir, Pollock, Modigliani and many more. The modern section is wonderful and laid out extremely well. Plenty of staff to assist you with questions and located right on the Albert Docks surrounded by lovely cafes for you to visit after. Strongly recommended.

A huge space full of nothing! If this is art it's a joke. A sewing machine wrapped in a blanket and tied up with string? I could have dreamt up a dozen ideas whilst here that would have been just as good but they would not display them because I am not well known. I even thought about putting a... More

A nice setting and a few nice pieces, but in comparison to other galleries I have to say it's slightly drab, I was only in there for about 10 minutes. The pieces of work in there are not that great and the pieces are just too spaced out. I know art galleries are known to have lots of empty space,... More

This is the first time the artist's work has been exhibited in the UK for some 20 years. Amazing work - not to be missed.
