UNIQLO Tate Lates are back for the month of February with another amazing lineup. Join us on the 28th of February from 6pm to 10pm at the iconic Tate Modern museum in London for a celebration of art, music, film and community that includes interactive workshops, film screenings, poetry readings and much more.



STEVE MCQUEEN – ARTISTS AND THE CITY


February’s UNIQLO Tate Late is inspired by the work of Steve McQueen and his exhibition at the Tate Modern museum. Visitors will also be able to engage in workshops and pop-up talks about other artists who are inspired by the city of London.

Check out what we’ve got planned below.

YEAR 3: CITIZENS OF THE WORLD

Inspired by Steve McQueen’s Year 3 project, visitors can explore ideas around home, belonging and life as a global citizen, as well as creating a Citizens of the World passport to reflect their own identity.

BOLLO BROOK YOUTH CENTRE: WHO WE ARE, WHO WE AREN’T

Join young Londoners from Bollo Brook Youth Centre who will be exploring how we perceive our own and other people's place in the world and how different experiences influence this perception.

Visitors will be encouraged to create their own self-portraits and join round-table discussions about the topic.

APPLES & SNAKES PRESENTS: JAY BERNARD


Make your way to the Natalie Bell Building on Level 6 at 7pm to join poet Jay Bernard as they read from their poetry collection, Surge, followed by a Q&A and book signing.

Surge explores the devastating New Cross house fire in 1981, which killed 13 young black people. Follow Jay as they trace a line from here to the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire.

FILM SCREENINGS: 1000 LONDONERS

Chocolate Films have specially curated screenings of their 1000 Londoners project – a unique and ongoing digital portrait of the city, which includes some of the best short films of the last six years, including Windrush Generations, Century: 10 Women x 10 Decades and Night Crawlers.

NEDKO SOLAKOV: A LIFE (BLACK AND WHITE)


Watch art come to life at the entrance of the Performer and Participant galleries with Nedko Solakov’s performance art A Life (Black & White). This performance involves two workers continuously painting over the course of the display.

UNIQLO TEN MINUTE ART TALKS

Want to speak your mind about the art in the Tate Modern? Head to the Blavatnik Building on Level 4 to join members of Tate’s Visitor Experience team as they lead three lively rounds of conversation with visitors, using key artworks in Tate’s collection as inspiration for discussion. Come along and let your voice be heard.

There’s also a pop-up bar on the Level 1 Bridge where you can get street food, meal deals and two-for-one cocktails or check out live music programmed by NTS Radio.

See you there!
