Price: FREE

Constellations is a new free exhibition open as part of the gallery’s DLA Piper Series at Tate Liverpool.

The collection features over 180 artworks by numerous artists including Sir Peter Blake, Grayson Perry, Marcel Duchamp and Eduardo Paolozzi.

Constellations groups together major works from the Tate collection to encourage the exploration of connections between them.

The exhibition has an emphasis on British pop artists exploring American culture and society of the 1960s and includes a number of works that have never before been on public display.

Sir Peter Blake – whose Dazzle Ship many of you will have admired on Liverpool’s waterfront – will have a piece on display known as, ‘The Masked Zebra Kid 1965’. The piece features a collage dedicated to the American wrestler of whom Blake was a fan.
