A group of Sixth Form Art and Photography pupils visited exhibitions in London last week.
The day was jam packed with culture! We visited the Olafur Eliasson, 'In Real Life' Exhibition at Tate Modern, which appealed to artists and photographers alike. Many of his works - incorporating photography, installations and geometry - were interactive and dealt with the important issue of Climate Change and Global Warming.
Then it was on to the National Portrait Gallery to view the Taylor Wessing Portrait Photography Exhibition. This exhibition showed pupils how creating a narrative can be an important aspect of Photography. Then off we went again to the Victoria and Albert Museum to see the Mary Quant exhibition. This showed how fashion evolved in the sixties as an expression of youth culture.
An enjoyable day was had by all!
