Tate Modern Workshop

Material Action With Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership


Drop in to our showcase and workshop to explore the exciting possibilities of clay

Join us at Tate Exchange and see work created by young people at Vauxhall and Nine Elms galleries with art group Collective Matter. Then get your hands dirty in a drop-in activity exploring the transformational qualities of clay and the magic of digital media.

The Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership has worked with Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall, Gasworks and Pump House Gallery in jointly commissioning Collective Matter to undertake Material Action – an artists’ residency and workshop series at all three galleries,  working with young people as part of Tate Exchange. 

Collective Matter is a new outreach art group, initiated by Eva Masterman, Mary O’Malley and Katie Spragg. Brought together during their time at the Royal College of Art, Ceramics and Glass MA, they use clay as a primary vehicle for critical engagement, cross-disciplinary practice, and creative communication and experimentation. 

This event is programmed by Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership, a Tate Exchange Associate.

About Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership

The Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership was created in 2010 to coordinate and drive forward the transformation of the area between Lambeth Bridge and  Chelsea Bridge on the south bank of the Thames from a neglected pocket of light industry into London’s newest and most vibrant cultural quarters. Supported by a dedicated Programme Delivery Team, this unique public-private partnership has a shared vision for the area and is responsible for promoting this both locally and internationally.
