As part of our SheCAN initiative to get more Black women and WOC to experience the arts who may not always find it affordable or accessible or who may want to work in the arts, gain knowledge or experience the arts, we have joined forces with the Tate to giveaway two tickets to one of the most talked about exhibitions of 2020, Steve McQueen.
SheCAN aims to create opportunities and experiences for women (there is no age restrictions ) within the creative industries, from mentoring to jobs to training, free events.
London is Steve McQueen’s home town and a place that continues to inspire him. This is the first major exhibition of his work here since he won the Turner Prize in 1999. It features 14 major works spanning film, photography and sculpture, including his first film shot on a Super 8 camera, Exodus 1992/97, and the recent End Credits 2012–ongoing, McQueen’s homage to the African-American singer, actor and civil rights activist Paul Robeson, which is on show for the first time in the UK. Spanning two decades of his career, the exhibition will reveal how McQueen’s pioneering approaches to filmmaking have expanded the ways in which artists work with the medium, creating poignant portraits of time and place.
Date: Runs until 11 May 2020 More info here.
