23rd July – 4th September 2016
Tate Modern, Macaulay Gallery
Touch, bend, balance and play with large scale, colourful shapes and forms.
How do artists handle materials in their studio and how is this different to the way we experience the same materials in a gallery? Material World invites visitors of all ages to experience an immersive artwork and to handle, compose and play with materials together. Improvise with materials. Try touching the ceiling or two walls at the same time. Try connecting all the shapes together. Go under. Go over. Wrap a shape around you!
Material World is linked to the Materials and Objects collection display on Level 4 and devised by Laura X Carlé with Tate Families.
Drop-in for special artist-led sessions with the creator of Material World; Laura X Carlé.
