On 28 October 2016 Tate Modern will launch Uniqlo Tate Lates a new series of special late nights offering an opportunity to see the latest exhibitions and displays, hear music from up-and-coming DJs, watch rarely-seen artists’ films, and join in with interactive events. Held on the last Friday of every month, the October late will launch the series with a vibrant programme – from the one-off screening of Philippe Parreno and Douglas Gordon’s award winning film, Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait, which follows footballer Zinédine Zidane in real time, through to DJs in the unique Tank spaces and the chance to create giant doodles on the windows of the new Terrace Bar.
Each month the popular 10 Minute Talks and Collection Conversations will take place throughout the gallery into the evening, where visitors can listen to a member of Tate staff talk about their favourite work on display or take part in a group conversation about a particular piece in the collection. Tate Exchange on Level 5 will also be open, offering a space to meet, relax, and discuss ideas. On 28 October visitors can pick-up ‘guidelines’ by Tim Etchells, the launch artist for Tate Exchange, inviting them to explore the galleries in fun and diverse ways.
NTS Radio will programme diverse audio soundtracks by local talent for Uniqlo Tate Lates every month – inviting contemporary DJs from across London to play in the atmospheric South Tank and new Terrace Bar. The sets on 28 October, by DJs Micachu and Coby Sey, will be accompanied by captivating visual displays from Josh Homer, Klein and Masha Batsea which will be projected onto the raw concrete walls of the Tanks.
A range of other free events have also been organised to celebrate the launch of Uniqlo Tate Lates, including Doodle Night in the Terrace Bar, where guests will be invited to doodle on the windows using waterbased pens. This marks the release of Doodle Town by Dominika Lipniewska, a new book by Tate Publishing which will available in the gallery’s shops that evening. Hackoustic will host interactive performances around the building where guests will be invited to play unique instruments made from upcycled junk, while Daedala will perform an animated puppet show in the Tanks lobby. Special offers on food and drink will be available from the Terrace Bar on Level 1 through to a pop-up bar on the Level 10 viewing platform, which will include 2-for-1 cocktails and a £10 burger and beer deal.
Uniqlo Tate Lates will provide a unique location at which to welcome in the weekend at the end of every month, free of charge. It will provide visitors with the opportunity to experience Tate Modern after hours, turning the volume up on London’s creative talent.
