Tate Liverpool has announced an exhibition that will explore the spatial structure of Francis Bacon’s paintings.

Titled Francis Bacon: Invisible Rooms, the show will feature on this little explored aspect of his paintings – the rooms in which the action takes place.


The museum explains: “Bacon’s imaginary chambers emphasise the isolation of the represented figures and bring attention to their psychological condition; the act of placing the sitters in ‘invisible rooms’ guides the focus of attention towards the existential concerns of the painting.”

It will run from May 18 to September 18 2016.
