Room One

Room one was full of the hole exhobiton. parts of all of the show. what suppried me about this room was that they had fan object in the room as well. for example they had his painting pallet, glasses and some personal letter. these fan object were spead out with in the exhobition as it to keep some people intrested. they also showed work by other artist who helped and were helped by turner.

the flow thorgh room one was standar and boaring. some of the work was intresting. like the pages form his skeach book with were suprising exprmeantal.

Room Two

The hole exhbition showed turner late development. i found that very intresting as i dont know alot about him at all and for his time what he did was very uneplained to me. the exhobiton showed me. 

room two showed the start of his late develpoment when he when to vennice. the back ground or horzens of his work is painted in mutch of the same style that his famouse works are apinted in. this is because you cant see the back gound as well as the for ground and turner had started to lose his site.

Room two also showed alot of his skeaches, its intresting to see what he names the skeaches. the skaeches are pure obvervation and he simply names them the location they were painted at. you can also see how he starts to lose his abitly to see long distances. in his early sketches everything is painted in realive detale. in the late ones on the fore ground was in detale and the back ground intresting.

Room Five

Room five starts to show turners un finnished works. these are intresing as durning the exhobiton youve built up and idea of what hes trying to achive, now you start to see how he achives it. yet aging theres a bench... the room also has alot of turner sea scapes. this is because he becomes increasingly intrested with painting the sea. i dont know what but maby its because the can see as well so puts more emiton into his work, and he finds alot of emtion in the sea.

The exhibition was called "Turner, Painting Set Free." It showed the work he produced in the last ten years of his life. Turn started to louse his sit form his cataracs during this period and the exhibition shows how his work develpoed during this peioud.

Room Three

THE FIRST BENCH. the bench for old people to sit down and look at turner lager works witch and hung on the wall sournding the center of the seating aragment. i dont like alot of the wwork in this room as i dont really conet with the ideas being explored. the main thing in this room is the size of the paintings and the distince diffrence between old and new. also the names show how turner thort. the later ones are called but what they are,showing there turners attempt to try and see properly agian. the eraly ones are myth names and sutch like. 

It was a good exhobition, i learnt alot and it was intresting. i liked most the work too, being a 3D student i dont get to see alot to 2D work and its nice to see some highly techincal stuff sometimes, you really appricate it as it has some many quitllys in it that i dont have. i didnt like the way it was set out. it was too long and there was to mutch to see... you started to get board after a while as his work is very samey. 

From radical innovations in the use of colour and form to new materials like neon and interactive, kinetic sculpture, this exhibition reveals some of the most original art of the last 100 years.

The time: 1930s. The place: South America. The stage was set for a major innovation in art. Over the next 50 years, artists across five cities would pioneer a new visual language to express their deeply held beliefs about art and its power to change the world around them

MODERNISUM is hard to sum up as one thing, it consists of many sub movement all with there own ideas, really its the start of the current approach to life and Modernistic thinking reshaped the world in the thwenith centry. mainly in art and desing moderniusum is the intorduction of the idea of "form follow function" and represtaiontion if not makeing something to be its own object. lots of modesnistc work has a core idea or posses of stipping something down to its basic element to make it more easly inturprated.  

Room Two

Room two had far more 3D work in it. The work work in hear was a step more developed than room ones ideas. Mostly moveing towards 3SD pices. the room didnt have a perticular lay out to it, it was sort of a splash of works. i think this format was addopted to incorage the viwer to walk round the objects. most was on the wall and presented with big shadows being cast off them. obvisly something done by the curator to bring the work more to life, witch was needed after seein room three. the work in hear was done mostly by the brazinalns, i dont really know what that means beyond it being another way of orginising the work. there was a pice in the coner witch at first struck me to be a very intresting minimal pice. it consisted of brass pizza siles attaced to eacherther by hinges. there were to many to compleat a full cuircle so the object had folded its self up. this was a very intresting prosses to me, how a pice of work could biuld its self. 

A cube mounted onto the wall. the cube casts big shadows... the curates way of displaying it has made it more intresting. 

Room Three

Room three is what made the exhobition for me. The other two rooms were standard and nothing new to me but Room Three... first of all these works werent just explorations of monderinst ideal, they had alot more personalty to them (witch is not modernistic at all) the forms in hear seemed to be far more exprmental. more about seeing what will happern rather than displaying an idea. the room also addopted the splash lay out ( i like the splash lay out, it allows you to attack the room how you want). as soom as you wall thorugh the entracne yuo faced with the rooms master pice, this was obviuoly put hear as you can see it comeing and it sort of shoke you as you come round the coner. i liked this effect, it made one more excited about the rest of the room. at the back of the room was a lot of work by a lady called Gego. i liked Gego as the work is a more exprmental form of geometray. her work was hagging form the ceialing and some was in the miidle of the room. the problem with this room is that the master pice draws you in to see Gego work and everything inbertween you dont even notice.

Whats gone in ?

works come form Patricia Phelps Cisneros's collection of geometric abstract art form south amrica. this is what has gone into the exhbition and i gessing the hole collection was on show as at some points there was an uncohearence in the rooms.

Room One

First of all there was a hole in the wall as soon as you walked in so you could see thorugh to the last room. i think this was done as in that room was the more developed work. second of all this was the only room with a bench. this is because nearly all the works in hear were 2D and easly viwed when sitting down. Aslo the bench gided you round the edge of the room and filled the empty space due to a lack of 3D work left in the middle. Work in this room reflected far more standardised and comment modernistic paratices. simple geometric shape and block couler on a flat surfact witch is usaly exploring the brakeing down of an image or an emtion and playing with the idea of space and depth with in the picture. some of the more intresting work was apinted of a very fat canvious but didnt display and more explration of depth other than lifting the picture off the wall into its own space.  

intresingly shapped canvouses. maby takeing the object being painted into realty. once the object is taken out of the frame its put into a more real perspective. 

Drawing of mess wrapped up. a minimal object. i prosume it explors some sort of methord of makeing a form with wire. it was displayed in the conner of the room and a smaller less intresing pice. i feel this was on of the most intresing objects in the room.

this pice differs to the other work in the exhobition as its alowed to do what it natulay wants to do. all the other work is dragged into being perfect. pefctly sright lines and forms. this hagngs how it natural forms once the artist set it up.
