No Soul for Sale: A Festival of Independents
This event has now finished. Until May 16 2010
Time Out says
It's hard to believe Tate Modern is only ten years old, given its status as a London landmark and a major player in the city's art scene (it's the world's most visited modern art gallery). To celebrate entering double digits, Tate Modern will hold an arts festival in the Turbine Hall with artists' collective No Soul For Sale and 50 independent collectives and art spaces, which will stage performances, music and film over a long weekend. The gallery will stay open until midnight on Friday and Saturday in order to cram everything in, and visitors are invited to submit their memories of the gallery to be made into a film (via Tate Modern's blog and other online channels). On May 12, accompanied by a band, a parade of 300 local children will walk from Borough Market to the Tate bearing birthday cakes inspired by the iconic building to share with visitors: see the website for details of this and all other events.
