WATCH: Philip Guston Exhibition at the Tate Modern

Philip Guston returns to the Tate Modern this October in an exhibition running until the 25th of February.

It is the first major retrospective that the gallery have done on the painter in nearly 20 years, and fans of the artist have flocked to the museum to see the long-awaited showcasing.

The exhibition had previously garnered controversy for its cartoonish depiction of figures in white hoods, and it was postponed from its intended release in 2021 due to issues over interpretation of these figures.

While the natural perception is that they are members of the Ku Klux Klan, Guston has been a creative who has delighted in the enigmatic aspects of his works.

His art is known for its socio-political subject matter, addressing themes of racism and evil in American history.
