UNIQLO TATE LATE CELEBRATES INTERNATIONAL LONDON



30 August 2019
18.00 – 22.00 (with the Terrace Bar staying open until 23:00)
Admission free

On 30 August, Tate Modern will host an evening celebrating the vibrant creative culture of South London. This month’s Uniqlo Tate Late will provide an exciting opportunity to experience this part of the city anew through the eyes of artists living and working the area. The evening’s programme will consist of an eclectic programme of music, art, discussion, film and workshops.

The Turbine Hall will become a gigantic collage studio, with a series of hands-on workshops and drop-in sessions reimagining the landscape of South London. Visitors will be able to participate in a collective collage exercise to transform the existing landscape and realise their utopian visions of the area. Another workshop will look more closely at building materials and is inspired by images of the Brutalist architecture of iconic South London landmarks including Southbank’s National Theatre and Vauxhall’s Keybridge House. Illustrator Kazvare Made It will host an activity that pays homage to South London institution Morley’s where participants will be able to create and decorate their own bespoke takeaway boxes. The evening will also feature an immersive digital display created by Girls About Peckham that will celebrate style, attitude and power.

A number of talks inspired by communities in South London will take place throughout the evening. Resident Advisor will host a series of conversations with artists, labels and promoters shaping the electronic music landscape in South London, an area which is home to many independent record labels. NTS Radio DJS Severin Glance, Wu Lu and Marshmello will be taking over the Level 1 Bridge and DJs MO.MAYA, Junior XL and m.kwas will play sets in the Terrace Bar. There will be a screening of Cutting It, followed by a talk by Jonny from Peckham Cuts, Peckham’s walk-in dubplate cutting service which cuts vinyl for some of South London’s finest DJs and producers. A series of short films by South London based directors – Duncan Loudon, CC Wade, and Deepa Keshvala – will be screened in the Starr Cinema. Following the screenings, the directors will discuss how the city has influenced their work moderated by Hannah Turnbull-Walter, as well as and a Q&A session.

A discussion on food production in South London focusing on urban growing, beekeeping, foraging and farming will be held in the Terrace Bar where Bermondsey Street Bees’ founder Dale Gibson, urban gardener Carole Wright and Alexandro Rizzo of AN25 will discuss the idea of ‘edible cities’, chaired by broadcaster and activist Joel ‘Jay Brave’ Bravette. Tate Modern’s riverside terrace will host pop up-bars serving the new ‘Elemental brew’ made in Bermondsey, street food stalls and a pizza oven. A 2-4-1 cocktail offer will be available throughout the evening. Uniqlo Tate Lates have introduced several new, long-term sustainability initiatives including a deposit scheme for long lasting cups in bars and cafes. These afterhours events are now completely paper free with all programmes accessible digitally and through QR codes on the website.
The evening is a fantastic opportunity to experience the Tate Modern collection displays after hours and will coincide with current exhibitions Olafur Eliasson: In real life, Natalia Goncharova, Takis and the newly opened ARTIST ROOMS: Ed Ruscha free display in the Blavatnik Building. Tickets to all exhibitions are available for only £10 on the night.
