A dynamic relationship between pen and lens takes form in the halls of the Tate. Reuniting significant works from the museum collection and the Yageo Foundation, the exhibition Capturing the Moment invites visitors to explore the relationship between contemporary painting and photography. The journey embraces the last one-hundred years through the works of 39 artists, from post-war painters such as Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Alice Neel - whose art took on photography in many different ways - to the extraordinary pictorial photos by artists such as Hiroshi Sugimoto, Jeff Wall, Louise Lawler and Candida Höfer. The itinerary also explores the work of those protagonists - from Andy Warhol to Gerhard Richter and Pauline Boty - who practiced new approaches to contemporary painting, influenced by the photography of the XX Century. This investigation is carried out while looking, at the same time, at contemporary painters like Christina Quarles and Laura Owens who united painting with new forms of digital media. Created in collaboration with the YAGEO Foundation of Taiwan, founded by Taiwanese collector, businessman and philanthropist Pierre Chen in 1999, the exhibition is a unique opportunity to explore the way in which some of the great modern painters and photographers of our time worked together while using two distinct mediums.
