Tate Collective member Anjuli talks us through their takeover of Late at Tate Britain on Friday 7 June in collaboration with Student Ambassadors from University of the Arts London
Tate Britain has had a brand new rehang and to celebrate this momentous occasion, us folk at Tate Collective have collaborated with the cool kids at UAL to organise a Late at Tate in honour of it. Stick it in the diary: Friday 7 June, 18.00 - 21.30 - music, performance, fashion, art, workshops and more. By my calculations, that is three and a half hours of fun. I know what you’re thinking. ‘Sounds amazing Anj, but surely a night like this is going to cost me a pretty penny!’
Well, worry not my bread-counting friends, you won’t have to front up the dough, this is FREE. Now, given Tate Britain’s new makeover, we think it’s high time you got one too.
That’s why we’ve invited the brilliant Mo Tomaney to orgainse a SUPERSWISH event. SWISHING is basically a large scale clothes swap - the perfect way to revamp your wardrobe without spending a thing. Here’s the drill: pick an item of clothing or accessory you no longer use, make sure it’s clean – no ketchup stains, or anything. Come along to Tate Britain. Check out the rehang, marvel at the Hume, the Hockney and the hare. Some time between 18.00 and 19.00, drop off your item and behind the scenes the fashion fairies will style-up your offerings for you to come back and SWISH to your heart’s content.
Come in with a dress, leave with some shoes; in with a scarf, out with a bowler hat! The possibilities are endless. Then, my advice is to nip to the loos, change into your new item and throw some shapes to the music curated by fabric nightclub.
