In spring 2019 Turner Contemporary will stage the largest UK exhibition of Scottish artist Katie Paterson to date, paired with JMW Turner.
Conceived by Paterson as an ‘exhibition of ideas’. It will include the majority of
Paterson’s existing works, which explore our relationship with the vastness and wonder of the universe; our desire to see the unseeable, to know the unknowable.
The exhibition will also include several new commissions and 30 of Paterson’s Ideas –artworks designed to live in the imagination interspersed with works by JMW Turner.
Like Paterson, Turner was fascinated by the sublime wonder of nature, capturing the changing and atmospheric qualities of light, air and weather in his paintings, while also being deeply curious about science and the physical world.
