An exhibition 30 years in the making! As an Art Handler, Ken Simons has cared for every piece of art displayed at Tate Liverpool since the gallery opened in 1988.


Exploring the Unseen, is a new display of 30 works selected by Ken to mark Tate Liverpool’s 30th birthday and Ken’s 30-year career at our gallery.

On display are a selection of Ken’s favourite artworks from the Tate collection alongside artists who had their first UK showing at Tate Liverpool. Highlights include Joseph Mallord William TurnerDame Barbara Hepworth and Mark Rothko

The display explores the unseen or mysterious spaces in our world and point to Ken’s particular interest in sculptural and landscape art. You can hear from Ken first-hand during a week-longs residency in Tate Exchange and other fascinating, behind the scenes events, see below.
