People who have saved this event:



This extraordinary exhibition takes as its premise the life and music of Brian Wilson, the creative force behind The Beach Boys between 1962'7. Here, Wilson's music becomes a prism through which to view developments in art history and Southern California from the 1960s. Loosely chronological, the paintings, sculptures, installations, photo-text works and films of some thirty-one artists, offer unexpected perspectives on Wilson's cultural achievement. This relationship between art, music and myth is framed by Tate St Ives' stunning backdrop: Porthmeor Beach, a glorious stretch of sand where surf is usually up.
