We're saddened to hear that Robert Therrien has died aged 71 — the sculptor who made us feel like Alice in Wonderland at Tate Modern last year.
Therrien encouraged us to take a childlike perspective on an adult world. His playful spirit will live on.
#WorkoftheWeek is a painting from Dawn Mellor's series of women in police uniforms, taken from British tv dramas. Mellor adds ‘visual commentary’, complicating how we look at the characters and relate to society’s expectations for female protagonists.
On free display in Tate Britain's #60Years Gallery.
Meet Takis (born 1925), the Greek artist who harnesses magnetic energy to create sculptures of light and sound. Takis's work seeks out the essential poetry and beauty of the electromagnetic universe. He was one of the most original artistic voices in Europe from the 1960s and remains a pioneering figure today. A major exhibition of the artist's work opens at Tate Modern on 3 July 2019. #TakisSculpture
Olafur Eliasson’s work makes us aware of our senses, the people and the space that surrounds us. Some artworks introduce natural phenomena while others use reflections and shadows to play with the way we perceive and interact with the world. Much of his work is a result of research into complex geometry, motion patterns, and his interest in colour theory.
Before the artist's major exhibition launches at Tate Modern next month, we've teamed up with WePresent and Tate curator Mark Godfrey to explore how Eliasson uses art to create a new world view. Link in bio for full read.

This print is one of a series of works by Richard Hamilton inspired by James Joyce's novel 'Ulysses'. Relating to the 'Sirens' episode in the novel, here we see two barmaids working at the Ormond Hotel in Dublin. Hamilton's illustrations are faithful to Joyce's text, in this case capturing the colours and eroticism of this passage.
Today marks #Bloomsday, the annual celebration of James Joyce's work. Taking its name from the novel's protagonist Leopold Bloom, Bloomsday marks the day 'Ulysses' is set: 16 June 1904. 📚

Robert Bevan (1865–1925) was influenced by Walter Sickert’s advice that artists should find subjects in everyday London life. This is one of his many pictures of horse sales in the city. 🐴🐴🐴 Horses were still common in London in 1912 but the arrival of the motor car meant their days were numbered.

'He is true to himself when he paints, but he doesn’t convey egotism: he is thoughtful. He works by spontaneous improvisation but never makes a painting that is only a spectacle... He thinks about painterly structures every moment of the day. He actually wakes up thinking about them.' - Matthew Collings on #FrankBowling, his friend and former tutor. Link in bio for the full read.
Frank Bowling's first major retrospective is open now at Tate Britain. A lifetime of large-scale paintings showcase his visionary approach that fuses abstraction with personal memories. Here's the artist in his London studio photographed by Mathilde Agius for Tate Etc.
