BP Family Festival: Close Encounters of the Art KindOctober 18, 2014
Perrier has the absolute pleasure of collaborating in an Events Series at Tate Britain.
BP Family Festival: Close Encounters of the Art Kind
Saturday 25 October and Sunday 26 October 2014, 11.00–16.00
This is a free event that centres around inviting families to discover, explore and create throughout the galleries of Tate Britain.
Part of the series: BP Displays
Embark on a voyage to discover new art forms and probe 500 years of British Art.
Led by artists, performers and musicians, visitors to the BP Family Festival will be taken on a creative exploration of the unknown planet of Tate Britain and the life forms of British art within it – through film-making, experimental electronic music, and live performance throughout the galleries.
Be part of a film production line including costume, performance and props that squeezes the imagination out of anybody who comes along and turns it into a movie, hear experimental electronic music created using vintage and obsolete equipment, catch a guided tour of the history of your birth years through performance and TV, explore Henry Moore’s sculptures through movement, and encounter playful, evocative, humorous and surprising performances in response to artworks.
Participating artists are The People Speak, Langham Research Centre, Mamoru Iriguchi, Aya Kobayashi, Eileen Perrier, Robinson Stirling and Sarah Cole.
This event has been devised by Tate’s Early Years’ and Families team and artists Harold Offeh and Neil Luck.
