Thursday 26 July, 18.00 - 21.00
From this Thursday Tate Liverpool will be opening late on the last Thursday of every month to give you food, drink, music, special events and the very best in modern and contemporary art. This month Late at Tate is inspired by Peter Blake, the godfather of British Pop Art.
Peter Blake in conversation with Tracey Emin will launch our first Late at Tate and although this event is sold out, you may be able to catch a glimpse of the artists in the gallery afterwards, where they will be signing copies of their respective books. We will also be holding Storytelling for Grown Ups (where resident poet John Hughes will be using artworks as the impetus for imaginative tales) and other themed talks in the gallery space. Meanwhile, Artprojx will present two rarely seen films – ARENA’s Masters of the Canvas (1992), which explores the relationship between Blake and masked wrestler Kendo Nagasaki and Ken Russell’s Pop Goes the Easel (1962), a film about British pop art featuring the artist and his British pop art peers at a time when they were on the cusp of critical acclaim and media attention.
All of our exhibitions will be open for you to take a look around, our café is offering dinner and there will be a bar in the foyer along with music from Liverpool’s Mellowtone DJs, who will be playing a mixture of rock & roll, funk, blues, jazz, soul and psychedelia, with rich and colourful playlist suggestions from Peter Blake and Tracey Emin.
