Get in engaged in some Carnival activity at Tate with this mass-performative event. Coinciding with the Notting Hill Carnival, this new commission, curated by Claire Tancons, brings together a mix of artists working with visuals and sound. Hew Locke will present his first performance piece about the politics and history of Notthing Hill’s multi cultural heritage. Marlon Griffith’s ‘No Black in the Union Jack’ is inspired by the 2011 London riots. Gia Wolff has designed an architectural backdrop for the pieces while, Dubmorphology (Gary Stewart and Trevor Mathison) will amplify the afternoon with a calypso, reggae and punk soundscape. So if you can’t brave the crowds in west London, get immersed in the spirit of carnival through these diverse artists.
