Capturing The Moment

Capturing the moment,Tate Modern

The arrival of photography changed the course of painting forever. In this unique exhibition, Tate explores the dynamic relationship between the two mediums through some of the most iconic artworks of recent times.

From the expressive paintings of Pablo Picasso and Paula Rego to striking photographs by Hiroshi Sugimoto and Jeff Wall, you will see how these two distinct mediums have shaped each other over time.

You will also discover how artists have blurred the boundaries between painting and photography, creating new and exciting forms of art, such as Pauline Boty’s pop paintings, Andy Warhol’s silkscreen prints, the photorealist works of Gerhard Richter, or Andreas Gursky’s large-scale panoramic photographs.

In an open-ended conversation between some of the greatest painters and photographers of the modern era, the exhibition explores how the brush and the lens have been used to capture moments in time.
