Mabel x Tate Modern – Talk About Forever | Tate

Rising songwriter and artist Mabel has created a video project to commemorate the opening of the new Tate Modern building. The video is directed by acclaimed choreographer Holly Blakey (Florence & The Machine, Jessie Ware) and the song in the video is an original composition for the project created by Mabel specifically for this special collaboration. The video is reflective of Gustav Metzger’s Liquid Crystal Environment 1965, remade 2005 which is displayed within the new Tate Modern. The colourful, psychedelic patterns produced by light displays such as Metzger’s became icons of London’s cultural scene in the 1960s, as musicians in particular sought to create total sensory environments for the appreciation of their work.

Yayoi Kusama's Obliteration Room | TateShots

Yayoi Kusama's Obliteration Room | TateShots

Artist Yayoi Kusama's interactive Obliteration Room begins as an entirely white space, furnished as a monochrome living room, which people are then invited to 'obliterate' with multi-coloured stickers. Over the course of a few weeks the room was transformed from a blank canvas into an explosion of colour, with thousands of spots stuck over every available surface. TateShots produced this time-lapse video of the Obliteration Room covering the first few weeks of its presentation at Tate Modern in 2012. It was first conceived as a project for children, and was first staged at the Queensland Art Gallery in 2002. #TateShots Find out more about Yayoi Kusama: https://goo.gl/aWbbK4 Subscribe for weekly films: https://goo.gl/lNZDZY

How to Print Like Warhol | Tate

How to Print Like Warhol | Tate

Discover how artist Andy Warhol made his colourful and iconic silkscreen prints. From Brillo boxes and black bean soup to portraits of films stars, Andy Warhol is famous for his bright and bold paintings and prints that celebrate 1960s popular culture. This style of art is called pop art. Printmaking appealed to Warhol as it allowed him to repeat a basic image and create endless variations of it by using different colours or sometimes adding paint to the printed surface. Isn't life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves? Andy Warhol In 1972, Warhol made a series of screenprints of Chairman Mao, the leader of communist China. Mao may seem an unlikely celebrity, but in the early 1970s America’s president, Richard Nixon, visited Beijing and Mao’s portrait was everywhere – making him something of a contemporary icon. Warhol used a photograph from the cover of the Little Red Book (a book of quotations by Chairman Mao) as the starting point for his portrait.

Agnes Martin – 'Beauty is in Your Mind' | TateShots

Agnes Martin – 'Beauty is in Your Mind' | TateShots

Agnes Martin’s restrained yet evocative paintings came from her belief that spiritual inspiration rather than intellect created great work. In this film, which features rare archive footage of the artist in her studio in New Mexico, her art dealer and confidant Arne Glimcher remembers Martin’s philosophical ideas about her work and her rigorous process in developing her paintings. Tate curator Frances Morris also reveals the mathematical precision behind Martin’s abstract masterpieces, and the intense experimentation which led to her signature grids. #TateShots Subscribe for weekly films: http://goo.gl/X1ZnEl

Kiki Smith – 'I Make Things to Experience the Process' | TateShots

'I don't question my impetus...I just do it and see what happens,' says artist Kiki Smith. From her home in New York, which also serves as her studio, Kiki Smith talks about the ongoing experimentation that drives her art, from the provocative sculptures of the female body that made her a leading feminist artist in the 1980s, to her more recent work that draws inspiration from the nature. 'I don't try to set my work on any path or any direction. I really try to follow it,' she says. 'As much as possible I don't question my impetus or motive for doing something. I just do it and then see what happens.' #TateShots Subscribe for weekly films: http://goo.gl/X1ZnEl

Why Study Art? | TateShots

We asked leading artists, actors, filmmakers, architects and choreographers why art should be on the curriculum. Watch their responses. Should art be on the curriculum? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below. Featuring: David Hockney, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Michael Craig-Martin, Catherine Opie, Cate Blanchett, Anne-Marie Imafidon, Cornelia Parker, Wolfgang Tillmans, Amanda Levete, Tania Bruguera, Bob and Roberta Smith, Michael Clark, Jacqueline Wilson, Alan Parker and Jeremy Deller. In October 2018, a landmark research project commissioned by Arts Council England – and involving schools and teachers who work with either the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) or Tate – outlined the overwhelmingly positive benefits of arts and cultural education on the lives of young people. The research, 'Tracking Arts Learning and Engagement (TALE)', undertaken by the School of Education at the University of Nottingham, has led to calls for urgent change, as thousands of young people and teachers express concern over the impact that declining arts and cultural provision in schools will have on future generations. #TateShots Find out more: https://goo.gl/Zo5Ncv Subscribe for weekly films: http://goo.gl/X1ZnEl

Nan Goldin – 'My Work Comes from Empathy and Love' | TateShots

Nan Goldin – 'My Work Comes from Empathy and Love' | TateShots

'My work has always come from empathy and love', says American photographer Nan Goldin. Goldin began taking photographs as a teenager in Boston, Massachusetts. Her earliest works, black-and-white images of drag queens, were celebrations of the subcultural lifestyle of the community to which she belonged and which she continued to document throughout the 1990s. During this period Goldin also began making images of friends who were dying of AIDS and recorded her experiences travelling in Asia. In this interview, Goldin introduces her latest book, Eden and After; a collection of portraits she has taken of children - one of the artist's ongoing photographic subjects. The book includes portraits of Goldin's close friends' children, with moments captured from pregnancy through to teenage years of life, and provides an intimate investigation into the narrative of childhood. #TateShots Subscribe for weekly films: http://goo.gl/X1ZnEl
