As part of The Long Weekend festival, Los Angeles-based artist Jennifer West will create a new film live in Tate Modern's epic Turbine Hall. A team of skate-boarders will traverse ink-covered film strips, their wheels scraping into the celluloid and marking their movements in complex and psychedelic patterns. This live event will be followed by a screening of the films created plus a selection of West's earlier films.
