12 months ago

On the occasion of the opening of the new Tate Modern, the museum is featuring a three-day celebration showcasing the very best of Tate; all for free and open to everyone.

On Friday night visitors can join a special late-night event curated by young people from Tate Collective London. Digital technology meets lo-fi materials in a range of interactive activities and installations with emerging artists and creatives. Radar Radio will provide the music as part of special audio-visual display.

Other highlights across the weekend include a choral work with over 500 singers from community choirs across London. A unique cycle of songs has been written in response to Tate Modern’s building, its history and its place in contemporary life. Film and video works from Tate’s collection will be on display in the newly refurbished Starr Cinema. Tate staff will be discussing their favourite works from the new collection hang in Uniqlo Ten Minute Art Talks.

For families there is a range of activities including Players, a space where you can play and experiment with sound and performance art.

Also watch out for BMW Tate Live performances which will emerge when you least expect.

Opening dates:
17–19 June 2016 at 10.00–22.00
