Loud Tate 2014 - All Glitched Up

This open call for submission invites you to digitally alter artworks on display in Room 1890 at Tate Britain.

There are many ways you might want to consider doing this: glitch it, manipulate in Photoshop, make it move,  print, cut, paste, and scan it to name a few. We’re interested in how you use the power of digital to reinterpret, remix and transform these artworks. 

Get involved

Take part by choosing an artwork from Room 1890, saving a copy and getting creative with your digital disruption and send it back to us. 

Submit your digitally disrupted artworks to us via the Tate Collectives Tumblr or by emailing collectives@tate.org.uk

Dealine for submissions: Sunday 26 April at midnight.

A curated selection of your submissions will be screened at Late at Tate on Friday 1 May 2015 in Room 1890 at Tate Britain.

From the entries submitted Tate will, at its discretion, select those to be shown in the display as part of Late at Tate Britain, on the Tate website or on any other third party platform.
