Make the Future Live is about bright ideas for a lower-carbon energy future.

Here’s the challenge: Globally, we are using more energy than ever before. But we need innovative thinking to make that energy go further, and find cleaner energy solutions for a lower-carbon world. Great ideas come from conversation, collaboration, partnerships; great minds coming together.

That’s why they’re inviting you to Make the Future Live. Get involved, feel inspired, and help make the future.

Friday late: (from 6pm-10pm) for adults only!
Catering especially for over 18s, this unique event offers something different for those looking for Friday night fun.

Visitors will be treated to an exclusive live podcast recording on stage by Intelligence Squared, debating how London could become the world’s first carbon neutral city. Joining them are special guests; former Gadget Show presenter Jason Bradbury and comedic genius and all round entertaining guy, Richard Ayoade. Winning combination!

Guests can fill up on food and drinks served by local, independent food stalls and explore the festival after hours, with virtual reality experiences and some of the latest inventions that could change the way we live in the future.

Late at Tate Britain: My Bed @ Tate Britain / Friday 1st April 2016

 

TIME AND PALACE:

Doors: 18.00 – 22.00

@ Tate Britain, Millbank, London SW1P 4RG

Free entry (arrive early!)

www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-britain/performance-and-music/late-tate-britain-my-bed

Late at Tate Britain is a chance for the curiously-minded to enjoy a mix of art, music, workshops food and drink.

April’s Late at Tate Britain is themed around Tracey Emin’s artwork My Bed. When this artwork was first exhibited in 1999 it caused a public outcry. How could an unmade bed be art? There’s a soiled bedsheet with various bits and pieces scattered around including condoms, dirty knickers, empty vodka bottles and cigarette packets. Controversial like many of Emin’s works, My Bed explores difficult themes like sexuality, relationships and gender. And we will too, through this exciting new programme.

Listen
Bedroom Creatives: Live Music:
These young creatives will be exploring the practice of bedroom music making and bringing it into the gallery to recreate their own DIY process. Expect experimental and intimate vibes from a young Vauxhall based producer Pokovsky with 404 a London-based, collective mixing drowsy vocals and lo-fi instrumentals.

Tracey Emin’s artworks are often provocative, raw and emotional, drawing on experiences from her personal life, from her sexual history, abuse and abortion to gender and relationships. Performance artists Travis Alabanza and Liv Wynter have collaborated on a poetic response to Emin’s My Bed exploring some of these themes.

Travis Alabanza is a Black, queer, non binary performance artist who uses live poetry, visuals and sound to create art centred around race, gender and class. Liv Wynter is a queer female artist who uses an anarchic and punk exploration of language, rap and poetry performance to bring attention to issues such as trauma, recovery, abuse, sexual violence and identity to challenge the idea of intimacy and without compromise.

Discuss
SEX TLK MTG:
Part performance part guided conversation, Bedfellows have co-opted the bed as an arena for real-time exchange.

Sit down with Bedfellows for a discussion and share resources about sex, desire, consent and relationships. Bedfellows is a sex education research project led by artists Chloe Cooper, Phoebe Davies and Jenny Moore and born from the personal, the political, and the professional investigating sex, sexual identity and feminist porn.

Make
Laid Bare: A Zine Making Workshop :
This drop-in workshop with artist Rudy Loewe invites you to create a zine exploring your own truths around gender and sexuality. Rudy Loewe’s practice includes drawings, comics, illustrations and prints. Loewe uses satire and comedy to explore a wide range of social issues including racism, sexuality, gender, disability and mental health.

Drink and eat
Grab a burger and a beer, glass of wine or an original cocktail made especially for the evening inspired by Tracey Emin’s My Bed.

See the work
Tracey Emin’s My Bed is on display in the BP Spotlight: Tracey Emin and Francis Bacon room.
