Dearest Art Collector

Blavatnik Building, Level 2

Inspired by Guerrilla Girls’ Dearest Art Collector, write your own letters to the gallery. In 1985 the Guerrilla Girls began a poster campaign that targeted museums, dealers, curators, critics and artists whom they felt were responsible for, or complicit in, the exclusion of women and non-white artists from mainstream exhibitions. What do you want the museum and collection to look like in 20 years’ time?

At 20.30 Frances Morris, Tate Modern's Director, will read and respond to some of your letters.

Film – Rosalind Nasha Shibi: Vivian's Garden (2017)

Starr Cinema, Natalie Bell Building, Level 1

Vivian’s Garden takes a close look at the artistic, emotional and economic lives of Vivian Suter and her mother Elisabeth Wild. A pair of Swiss / Austrian émigré artists, they developed a matriarchal compound in Panajachel, Guatemala, where they live in the company of two or more Mayan villagers as guardians and maids. This filmic portrait presents both the complexity of the colonial relations within the household as well as the deep sense of care that passes between all characters.
