Rinse take over Tate Britain to present an evening exploring futuristic frequencies in music and fashion in partnership with a number of names*  to celebrate 20 years of creativity and innovation, using the Tate collection as inspiration. The evening tells the story of how the radio station, the cities and the nation of this small island have played a significant role in the shaping of youth culture throughout the globe.

Join in: #LateAtTate

Rinse curate a narrative of trends and cycles in music and fashion, brought to life via a selection of creators and commentators. The programme includes:


SOPHIE and Koreless 
North Duveens

A blend of extreme pop fantasies from the ever mysterious producer SOPHIE, who shifts tectonic plates of pop with sounds often aligned with J-Pop and K-Pop, plus washed out electronica from Koreless with visuals from contemporary digital artists:

Royal College of Art student Eva Papamargariti, a Greek architect and new media artists whose projects take the shape of time-based media and explore themes of motion and destruction.  

Claudia Maté, co-founder and curator of Cloque, specialises in new media and online art. Her works encompass a variety of formats including programming, 3D, video, animated GIFs and sound. 

Daniel Swan uses iconography that litters popular culture throughout the ages and recycles them to create a narrative where time is no longer a barrier to his vision.

Katie Torn's ideas are distilled into polygon characters like custom-made 2nd life creature trapped in short story loops.

Jack Addis creates 2nd life pieces such as Shadow Boxing; alongside digital sculptures from Vince McKelvie
