Art and AlcoholArt and Alcohol at Tate Britain looks at the role of alcohol in British art from the 19th century to modern day. Ever since William Hogarth satirised the Georgian fascination with gin, artists have illustrated Britain's relationship with alcohol, whether it be a social lubricant or a warming friend during a social or family breakdown. This exhibition shows how alcohol cuts across time, generation, class and gender, and reflects changing tastes and attitudes. The display contrasts two works from Tate's collection: George Cruikshank's Worship of Bacchus, a critical panting illustrating in one huge canvas the effects of drink on society, and Gilbert & George's Drinking Sculpture, a wall-mounted montage of photographs (progressively blurred) of drinkers in a London bar.

 

About Tate Britain

Overlooking the River Thames, Tate Britain was originally founded through the philanthropy of the sugar magnate Sir Henry Tate. The Tate legacy now encompasses three other galleries around the UK, including Tate Modern also in London. Dedicated to showcasing Britain's artistic talent, Tate Britain is home to the greatest collection of British art from 1500 to the present day. More about Tate Britain
