The Tate – Amalgam

Amalgam - Theaster Gates

Tate Liverpool 13th Dec 2019 - 3rd May 2020

Theaster Gates is an artist, urban planner and performer based in Chicago US. Amalgam is a statement of the artist thoughts on the mingling of race ethnic and religion.

It's an amazing exhibition. I was totally blown away with the mix of work and continuing theme of masks.

As you enter you see a roof of tiles that stretch to the ceiling. My first reaction was I want to climb it.

There'a mix of objects, movement and shapes that you move through .

Finally reaching The Forest. This gives you a sense of loss but watching. The freedom it creates in your heart is breathtaking the sounds add that final touch.

this won't be my first visit to this exhibition.
