Alighiero Boetti was one of the most influential Italian artists of the 20th-century. As a key member of the Arte Povera group he sought radical new ways to use simple materials like stamps, pens and magazine covers. Later on he travelled to places like Ethiopia, Guatemala and Afghanistan and created some wonderful embroideries.

This new exhibition features many works never seen in the UK before, such as "Self-Portrait 1993" -- a life-size cast of the artist hosing his head with a jet of water.

Tate Modern is the most visited art gallery in London and houses a huge collection of international modern and contemporary art from the 19th-century onwards. You can find works by Monet, Dalí, Cézanne, Pollock, Rothko, Matisse, Pollock, Picasso and Warhol.

Richard Hamilton exhibition — Tate Modern – 13th February to 26th May 2014
Pop artist Richard Hamilton was one of the most influential British artists of the 20th-century, and the Tate is proud to present the first retrospective to encompass his entire career — from his early designs of the 1950s to his final works in 2011.


Henri Matisse — The Cut-Outs – 17th April to 7th September 2014
“Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs” is devoted to the artist’s famous paper cut-outs made between 1943 and 1954. It will bring together around 120 different works in a groundbreaking reassessment of the final chapter of his fifty-year career. The exhibition will re-examins the methods and materials that Matisse must have used, and highlight the tensions between fine art and decoration; contemplation and utility; and drawing and colour.


100 Years Later: Conflict, Time, Photography – 27th November 2014 to 14th April 2015
The Tate Modern’s new exhibition will coincide with the centenary of the First World War, and explores the relationship between photography and sites of conflict over time. It will showcase the different perspectives which artists have brought to the sites over differing passages of time: from works made a few moments after an event, to those made one year, ten years or even 100 years later.
