You are invited to create, play and have fun! Can you do something that has never been done before?
This summer, be part of a major collective artwork in the Turbine Hall for UNIQLO Tate Play: Mega Please Draw Freely, by artist Ei Arakawa. Draw on the Turbine Hall floor or on a banner inside a theatrical pine forest. We will hang banners up each Monday for everyone to see. Your drawings will combine with the drawings of others – those who came before you and those who came after you – to create this living mega artwork!
There will be live performances at 11.00 and 14.00 daily, (lasting 30–45 minutes) which you will be able to take part in. Arakawa will lead the performances on the Mega Please Draw Freely Picnic weekend.
Inspired by the Gutai group – radical Japanese artists who wanted to change the world through painting, performance and children’s play – everyone of all ages is welcome to scribble, sketch and become part of this collective artwork.
