UAL collaboration with Late at Tate
On the evening of Friday 6 June, Tate Britain hosted the latest in their Late at Tate event series, this time collaborating with UAL to look at the theme of ‘Inhabitation’.
UAL widening participation ambassadors and Tate Collective, a group of young creatives working with Tate, worked together to curate an evening of workshops, live music, performance and fashion, taking inspiration from artwork in the Tate Collection and the Phyllida Barlow commission currently on show at Tate Britain. The aim of the evening was to explore what it means to occupy space through sound and visuals focusing on issues of displacement, marginalisation, and feminism.
There was a fantastic buzz in and around the building from 6pm onwards, helped by the perfect sunny weather conditions. MogaDisco were on the decks, adding to the relaxed and summery atmosphere.
Tate Britain and UAL’s Widening Participation Team also worked with 30 young Londoners to explore artwork in the Tate Collection and Phyllida Barlow’s dock. Their bold fashion designs made a statement about inhabiting spaces, and the catwalk show was held in one of the galleries.
