A handy guide to this month's late-night event at the Tate Modern
Wondering what’s on this month? Check out what’s planned for the upcoming Tate Late at the end of June.
The June UNIQLO Tate Late will take place on 28th June from 6pm – 10pm. Entry is free.
This month’s Tate Late will take inspiration from the experimental and theatrical work of Natalia Goncharova, a prominent figure of the Russian avant-garde. Her work was prolific and, at times, controversial.
• Head on down to the Turbine Hall and get hands-on with a range of unique craft activities. Take inspiration from Goncharova’s costume designs for Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes and bring a giant puppet to life with creative studio Uandnonu.
• Make costumes, props and sets out of paper with Art Macabre and add your work to a collaborative backdrop inspired by Goncharova’s theatrical designs and Russian folklore.
• Goncharova designed for fashion houses in Moscow and Paris. Now you can strut your stuff in your very own hand-made paper costumes on our catwalk, organised in conjunction with Culture Device.
• Goncharova often used her body as a canvas, even walking the streets of Moscow in futurist body art. Embrace the colour and feel the inspiration with face and body painting with help from artists from Squiggles and Wiggles.
Don’t know your allégro from your allongé? Join Bennet Gartside, a Principal Character Artist of The Royal Ballet, to learn the basics at a beginners’ ballet session. No prior experience is required, although we do recommend comfortable clothing! 25 minute sessions will run on the hour at 7pm, 8pm and 9pm.
Don’t miss out on the UK premiere of Parsi, an award-winning short film by Argentine filmmaker Eduardo Williams and poet Mariano Blatt.
The captivating film takes the viewer on a journey the neighbourhoods of Bissau, navigating its lively streets by foot, roller skate, bicycle and automobile. The film was shot with a 360 degree camera by young individuals within Bissau’s queer and trans community, offering an unprecedented new take on poetry and technology in one unique project.
The film will be screened from 7pm at the Starr Cinema and will be followed by a Q&A session with the artists and Tate curators. A repeat screening will run at 8.45pm.
FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT
Head on over to Level 5 of the Blavatnik Building during the course of the evening to join Guildhall School postgraduate artists in an exploration of movement. Move through the space to encounter sound works, performances and situations, with time for listening, reading, relaxation and active engagement.
APPLES AND SNAKES PRESENTS ROGER ROBINSON
Join writer, musician and dub poet Roger Robison as he reads from his newest poetry collection, A Portable Paradise. Robinson’s work explores a diverse range of themes and motifs, from family life to urban violence, memories of Trinidad to reflections on creativity. The reading will be followed by a Q&A with Robinson and a book signing.
UNIQLO TEN MINUTE ART TALKS
Every half hour, staff and volunteers from across the Tate give a short talk, offering valuable insights and personal responses to artworks from across the Tate Modern collection.
