This month’s Uniqlo Tate Late will offer an eclectic programme of music, art, discussion, film and workshops, bringing together creative talent from across Europe and beyond to explore themes inspired by Tate’s international collection.
The event will include a Turbine Hall takeover by international DJs and musicians including Paris-based Crystallmessand Berlin-based Rroxymore, specially curated by NTS Radio for this truly iconic space. The evening’s soundtrack will continue in the Terrace Bar, with a programme by Hungma paying tribute to legendary Bollywood icon Sridevi. Sets from from MsLanji and Hungama resident DJs will be accompanied by food, visuals and performances from Bolly-illusion and a BollyBall. In the Terrace Shop, audiences will also be able to enjoy a poetry reading by award-winning poet and playwright Toby Campion from his debut collection which explores identity and tradition.
A series of talks and workshops will explore the impact of Brexit on the arts. Artists including Josephine Burton and Livia Rita will discuss contemporary European identity in their work, Palestinian choreographer Farah Saleh will investigate the collective mental health of UK residents after the EU Referendum and Resident Advisor will chat with some of Britain’s most innovative musicians on the future of their industry. Visitors can also join Eurovisioning, a karaoke homage to the great Eurovision Song Contest, or get involved in hands-on workshops contributing to a collective collage, making zines and designing badges.
To coincide with this year’s BMW Tate Live Exhibition: Anne Imhof, a free digital display of images from Imhof’s performances accompanied by a unique soundtrack will be on view in the Starr Cinema. The evening also offers a chance to see Tate Modern’s major exhibitions and displays afterhours, including the work of French painter Pierre Bonnard and Austrian artist Franz West, as well as enjoying pop-up food stalls, two-for-one cocktails, and special offers on Uniqlo beer created in collaboration with Tate Modern, Uniqlo and The Gipsy Hill Brewing Co.
