A Final Thought
Tate Liverpool upholds the high standard of art exhibition and display, like the other Tate galleries. Therefore, their curation is unique. They display their art collection in clusters or constellations, instead of in chronological order. Consequently, a central artwork thematically supports a small group of works. This entire constellation is thus formed after much thought. Key words and connections between the works act as start-points for the viewer to piece together the whole story presented.
