Late at Tate – Nov 08 Audiovisual Special

On the last Thursday of every month Tate Liverpool opens its doors until 21.00 for an evening of music, food, drink and the very best modern and contemporary art.

November’s Late at Tate on Thursday 27 November will be the last of the year, acting as Tate Liverpool’s unofficial closing ceremony for the Liverpool Biennial.

For those who have missed it so far, or wish to catch their favourite work before the end of the show, the Gallery is offering (for one night only), free admission to the MADE UP exhibition. Throughout the evening, visitors can also indulge in some late night Christmas shopping in the Tate Shop – stocked with new and exciting gifts for culture vultures. Performances and screenings by internationally renowned audiovisual talent will animate the foyer from 18.00 – 21.00 for the audiovisual event Nelco’s AV Social.

A major highlight of November’s Late at Tate is a special ‘In Conversation’ event with artists Adrian Ghenie (Romania) and New York based Adam Cvijanovic, chaired by Simon Grant, Editor of Tate Etc Magazine (18.00–19.30). Ghenie and Cvijanovic, currently displaying new work at Tate Liverpool, will use this forum to discuss their individual interpretations of the concept of MADE UP, offering an enlightening and informative insight into the creative processes of these two compelling painters. This talk forms part of the Romanian Connections programme of cultural events across Liverpool during the month of November. Tickets cost £7 and £5.50 (concessions). To book contact Tate Liverpool on 0151 702 7400. In Conversation with Ghenie and Cvijanovic has been made possible by the generous support of the Ratiu Foundation and Romanian Cultural Centre.

The screening line-up for Nelco’s AV Social gathers audiovisual artists such as animator Max Hattler (dubbed “one of the world’s most exciting young animators” by Dazed and Confused), and Ben Sheppee, the Tokyo-based head of VJ label Lightrhythm Visuals. Live performances include Oli Sorenson (VJ Anyone), Machine Elements, who have recently performed alongside Wu-Tang Clan at Futuresonic 2008 and VJ Movement, commissioned in the past by big names such as Calvin Harris and Ministry of Sound.
