Stay late at Tate

COLLECTIVE COLLAGE: The Tate Modern’s famous Turbine Hall will be transformed for the Uniqlo Tate Late night on August 30

AT THE end of this month, Tate Modern will host an evening celebrating the vibrant creative culture of south London.

The Uniqlo Tate Late on August 30 will provide an opportunity to experience this part of the city anew through the eyes of artists living and working in 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 known as the 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 Johny 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 TurnbullWalter, plus 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.
