Tate Liverpool: Threholds

15 September 2012 – 7 April 2013

Free Entry

Thresholds questions the uncertain boundaries of personal, geographical, political and cultural identities. The exhibition explores powerful themes including British identity, migration and the global effects of regional conflicts.

Split into three sections, Thresholds displays works from the Tate collection.Stranger than Self explores how artists in the UK have responded to British identity in terms of its culture and history. Artists in this section raise questions about ‘quintessentially British’ notions of beauty and tranquillity, address the political nature of images constructed by mainstream media, and offer a wider context of contemporary Britain in its cultural expansion and inclusion.
