Don’t miss Uniqlo Tate Lates April 2019

By on April 20, 2019

This month we are celebrating Franz West — the Austrian artist whose punk aesthetic exploded the pristine spaces of art galleries in the late 20th century. Best known for his abstract forms and sculptural furniture, his work often requires involvement from the audience.

Music programmed by NTS Radio
Hear DJ sets on the Turbine Hall Bridge from Munni, Don Sinini and DJ collective Boko Boko, plus catch NTS DJs in the Terrace Bar until 11pm.

D.I.Y Collage

Pin Badge Philosophy
Whether exploring philosophical theory or absurdist humour, Franz West was committed to being playful and creating direct connections with his audience. Create badges that celebrate your playful side and wear your work with pride.
