As a teaching artist, Packard admires Tate’s willingness to embrace contemporary platforms of display to connect young viewers with the Tate Collection.
Brooklyn, New York (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
Selected for their powerful graphic qualities, PD Packard’s prints, the EXPRESSION and MIND is idea + idea is BODY, are currently being featured in Tate Britain’s installation, Pattern, Graphics, Print. Throughout the month of May, Packard’s prints will be shown digitally on screens presented along side the original artworks of Sir Eduardo Paolozzi from the Tate collection.
Curated by Tate Collective London, the installation is part of Source Spotlight Display, a program developed for young creatives, 15–25 years, to create, experiment and engage with the Tate Collection at Tate Britain and Tate Modern. Using 21st-century digital and social media platforms such as Tumblr and Instagram, Source presents large numbers of images in a single location. As a teaching artist, Packard admires Tate’s willingness to embrace these contemporary platforms of display to connect specifically young viewers with the Tate Collection. Through teaching, Packard has found that when engaging children in the visual culture of art, even problematic children become calm and self-assured.
In addition, Packard’s print, Shift Of Thought, is now on view in the exhibit, STRUCTURE, at the Printmaking Center of New Jersey. Curated by Agnés Murray, the exhibit runs until June 7, 2014.
