Friday 10:00 – 22:00

@ Tate Britain, Millbank London SW1P 4RG

Entry: £10 book online


‘None of [the shortlisted works] are something you can “get” in a few minutes: you have to spend an hour or two with these pieces in order to really understand them,’ says Tate Britain Director Penelope Curtis. Take the time to make your own mind up at the shortlist exhibition, which returns to London following its showing at Gateshead last year.

The prize is awarded for an outstanding exhibition or other presentation in the year preceding 24 April, and up for consideration this year are Spartacus Chetwynd’s ‘carnivalesque’ installation at Sadie Coles HQ; Luke Fowler’s immersive film exploring the life and work of Scottish psychiatrist RD Laing; Paul Noble’s painstakingly crafted drawings of the fictional cityscape Nobson Newtown; and Elizabeth Price’s trilogy of video installations at BALTIC.

Liminal Sounds @ Rhythm Factory / Friday 20th April 2012


Doors: 22:00 – 05:00

@ Rhythm Factory, 16 – 18 Whitechapel Road, London E1 1EW

Entry: £3 advance £5 on the door

Liminal Sounds are back for their fourth installment at Rhythm Factory. Bringing together two musical heroes:

SLIMZEE is a man that needs no introduction. Having played a part in the evolution of the UK underground from jungle through garage and on to grime, he is one of the best and most influential DJs of the last decade. From his early days in Pay As U Go to his famed appearances on Rinse to possession of the most sought after selection of dubplates in the game, there is no denying his credentials. If you want any further proof check some of his infamous sidewinder sets – that should be all the convincing you need. One of the fastest and slickest mixers in the game, his sets are never to be missed.

YOUNGSTAR is one of the most important producers in grime’s rich history. As the man behind ‘Pulse X’, a track widely considered to be the first grime tune ever made, and a slew of other seminal tracks like ‘Bongo’, ‘Revival’ and ‘Formula’ to name a few, he has made an indelible mark on underground music in the UK over the last ten years. Such is the power and impact of his music that these tracks still regularly draw rewinds in clubs every weekend. Still killing it with productions that range from grime to garage, dubstep to drum and bass.
