Tate à Tate - Go undercover at Tate
Tate calls BP a ‘friend’, but does it know what that friend is up to all over the world? With stories, music and comedy, Tate à Tate is an alternative audio tour for Tate Britain, Tate Modern and the Tate Boat running between the two galleries on the River Thames. This sound artwork is a participatory intervention into the relationship between Tate and BP.
Go solo or get together a group of friends to take part. Where do you stand on oil sponsorship of the arts?
Download the audio files for free from www.tateatate.org.
You bring the iPod, Tate à Tate will bring a whole new experience of the gallery.
“A portable piece of cultural activism for the modern age.”
“Thomas Crown Affair meets eco-warrior sabotage in audio hijinx from Tate à Tate, casting your favourite masterpieces in new and oily hues.”
