Late at Tate Liverpool: Night of Bling
Thursday 28 August 2008, 18.00–21.00

Roll up for an evening of entertainment and enchantment. Follow a glittering tour of Gustav Klimt: Painting, Design and Modern Life in Vienna 1900 led by Tobias Natter (renowned author and co-curator of the exhibition), focusing on Klimt’s golden period. Sit in on an interdisciplinary salon on art and architecture with experts Professors Peter Vergo, Pamela Robertson and Alan Crawford on the connections and comparisons between the Arts and Crafts movement in Britain and America and the Wiener Werkstätte in Austria.

View the shimmering Klimt bio-pic starring John Malkovich and indulge in some fin de siècle scintillating songs in the form of multi award-winning Irish/ French chanteuse Camille O’Sullivan, who sings the dramatic songs of Jacques Brel, Tom Waits and Nick Cave. O’Sullivan recently played at Glastonbury and sold out at the Sydney Opera House and the Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh. Throughout the evening, DJ Gavin Kendrick warms up for the final performance with ‘unbounded sounds from antiquity to infinity’ and Liverpool Samba School animate the building with elaborate Klimt inspired costumes, music and dancing accompanied by the sounds of DJ Conrad.

Admission to Late at Tate is free. Charges apply to salons, tours and talks.
