RACHEL MACLEAN: WOT U :-) ABOUT? - Exhibition at Tate Britain | Tate

(Tuesday) (Sunday)

Rachel Maclean is a Glasgow-based multi-media artist who creates artificial visions using green-screen technology. Within her fantastical settings Maclean parodies fairy tales, children’s television programmes, beauty product advertising, internet videos, and pop culture playing all the extravagantly costumed characters herself.  At once seductive and nightmarish, glossy and grotesque, her films destabilise power dynamics and consumer desires.

Art Now: Rachel Maclean: Wot u :-) about?  is curated by Elsa Coustou, Assistant Curator, Contemporary British Art.  Maclean’s new film work, It’s What’s Inside That Counts (2016), has been commissioned by HOME, Manchester. The film has been created in partnership with HOME, Manchester, the University of Salford Art Collection, Artpace San Antonio, Zabludowicz Collection, Tate, Frieze Film and Channel 4 Random Acts. The exhibition has been created in partnership with HOME, Manchester.

The exhibition at Tate coincides with Rachel Maclean’s Wot u :-) about?, a major solo show of new work currently showing at HOME, Manchester,  8 Jan 2017.
