LATE AT TATE MODERN
The phenomenon of museum and gallery Lates still feels like a delightfully naughty novelty.
London’s greatest cultural institutions doing a lock-in – what’s not to love? It’s hard to describe just how great it is being allowed in after hours… with music, and bars, and—stuff.
Last Friday we were at Tate Modern. The theme: Soul of a Nation – and as one might expect, there was a host of brilliant activities. Music, poetry, art, writing, video (Solange, *hello*).
But what was totally wonderful – and weirdly unexpected – was how all the action brought Tate Modern’s stunning spaces to life. The scale of the place is completely awe-inspiring – of course – but often simply cavernous. On Friday it became magical.
We’re returning for the next Late, on the 29th September, where we’ll be making mischief with the Brixton Pound, and perfroming the third reading of the Brixtopian Manifesto. Can’t wait!
