Juke Box Meets Tate Britain is an exhibition of juke boxes presenting a changing and expanding archive of sonic connections, inspirations and interpretations of the BP Walk through British Art display.

Featuring music artists listened to while creating  the artwork you see in the galleries, spoken word excerpts from letters and diaries written 100 years ago, and even animal noises inspired by creatures found in the  paintings – this growing archive of real vinyl records makes you think about the collection in new and surprising ways.

If you would like to add your own sounds to the juke boxes, join artist Yuri Suzuki for a live vinyl cutting session on either Sunday 26 January or Sunday 9 February.

Alternatively, suggest a tune online and contirbute to Tate Britain's family-curated juke box!
