Conceptual Art in Britain 1964-79 @ Tate Britain / until 29th August 2016


Doors: 10am–6pm

@ Tate Britain, Millbank, London SW1P 4RG

Tickets: £10.50 book online

In the 1960s artists began to abandon traditional approaches and made ideas the essence of their work. This fascinating exhibition explores this pivotal period in British history.

It gathers together artists who took art beyond its traditional boundaries to suggest new ways of engaging with the realities of the world beyond the studio, which ultimately led to a questioning of the function and social purpose of art.

The radical and controversial work both scrutinised and consistently took inspiration from the real world. Asking what art is, as well as what it might be for, inevitably led some artists to create work that was often politically engaged with themes and issues ranging from feminism to the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

Seen within the context of its time, spanning Harold Wilson’s first Labour government to the election of Margaret Thatcher, this show reveals conceptual art’s lasting legacy.

Artists featured within the show include, among others: Keith Arnatt, Art & Language, Conrad Atkinson, Victor Burgin, Michael Craig-Martin, Hamish Fulton, Margaret Harrison, Susan Hiller, John Hilliard, Mary Kelly, John Latham, Richard Long, Bruce McLean, David Tremlett and Stephen Willats.

Mandela Trilogy @ Southbank Centre / from 31st August – 3rd September 2016


Doors: 19:30

@ Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XX

Tickets: from £15 book online

A festival celebrating modern Africa and the African diaspora (31 August – 4 September). The extraordinary life story of South African president and freedom fighter Nelson Mandela has been transformed into a musical tribute by Cape Town Opera and Wales Millennium Centre.

The performance follows three key stages of Mandela’s life, each featuring a different singer in the title role alongside a cast and orchestra of over 60 performers. Starting with Mandela’s early years and tribal initiation rites on the banks of the Mbashe River, the audience is taken on a journey to the heady and rebellious jazz-fuelled days in Sophiatown and onwards to Mandela’s lengthy incarceration on Robben Island and finally, his freedom.

Each of the three acts features distinctly different music to reflect each stage of Mandela’s life. From authentic Xhosa folk music to upbeat jazz and contemporary opera, the music spans the decades and influences that marked the life of one of the world’s most influential figures.
