Tate Modern Lates – Late at Tate Modern | Tate

On Friday 24 Sep at 19.00 and 20.30 we continue our Tate Lates series with 2 free screenings of Belgian artist Hans Op de Beeck's Staging Silence 3. Programmed in dialogue with the Sophie Taeuber Arp exhibition, this imaginative video takes us inside an intricate world of miniature dioramas created using everyday materials, dramatic lighting and tricks of perspective.

All of Hans Op de Beeck's Staging Silence videos, the final of which is screened at Tate, were realised through similar principles, capturing two pairs of anonymous hands constructing fictional environments on a miniature film set just three square metres in size. They take the viewer on a visual journey through depopulated, enigmatic, but nonetheless playful places, which are built up and taken down before the eye of the camera. As illusions and disillusions take shape, viewers are pushed between material reality and dreamlike stories.

We hope that you can join us for these exciting screenings, which both include video introductions by the artist. The screenings require a free ticket, available to collect from the Starr Cinema on a first-come first served basis.

Join us after hours for a mix of art, music, film and food

Join us for the London premiere of Ephraim Asili's debut feature film The Inheritance + Q&A, which screens as part of the re-launch of Tate Late on Friday 27 Aug.

Ephraim Asili has been exploring different facets of the African diaspora —and his own place within it— for nearly a decade. His feature-length debut, The Inheritance, is a vibrant work that almost entirely takes place within the walls of a West Philadelphia house, home to a collective of Black artists and activists. Based partly on Asili’s experiences in a Black liberationist group, the film interweaves a scripted drama of characters attempting to work towards political consensus with a documentary recollection of the Philadelphia liberation group MOVE, victim of a notorious police bombing in 1985. An endlessly generative work of politics, humor, and philosophy, the film references the legacies of the Black Arts Movement and features Black authors and radicals, members of MOVE, as well as poets Ursula Rucker and Sonia Sanchez.

The radical cinema of Kevin Jerome Anderson

Elena Gorfinkel's Sight & Sound article on the work of Kevin Jerome Everson – written on the occasion of Tate Film's 2017 retrospective – has just been published online to coincide with Second Run's double Blu-Ray release, Kevin Jerome Everson: How You Live Your Story.

It's such an insightful look at Everson's practice, and we're very pleased to see it freely accessible.

The American artist Kevin Jerome Everson makes films that hover between close observation and abstraction, politics and poetry.

The September edition of Uniqlo Tate Lates: Exploring Tate's collection will be live from this Thursday evening, and available for a week.

Don't miss Chilean artists Cristóbal León and Joaquín Cociña's stop-motion animation film, The Andes [Los Andes] (4 min, 2012), screening as part of the programme.

The Andes brings spectacular paper and masking tape sculptures to life. A recent addition to Tate’s collection, the film presents a shape-shifting spirit that moves through the walls of a home office, producing sinister symbols, plants and human forms. The film forms part of their series Third World, which creates new mythologies constructed from the legacies of colonialism, fascism, and mysticism in Latin America, and Chile in particular.

The Andes is introduced by the artists and Michael Wellen, Curator of International Art at Tate.

Friday evening Tate is hosting its first virtual edition of Tate Late, where Tate Film will be presenting Meriem Bennani and Orian Barki's 2 Lizards short animation series.

Initiated in March as a response to the artists' life under lockdown in New York, the series reflects some of changing attitudes, hobbies, anxieties and social media fixations that have emerged over the last few months. Mixing footage with CGI animation, 2 Lizards is both captivating and resonant.

Don't miss today's special masterclass at 14.00 with Chen Chieh-jen. He'll be screening an early unfinished work and his latest work-in-progress among a number of other clips as he talks us through the last four decades of his career.

We close the series with a screening of Realms of Reverberation and Wind Songs + Q&A at 17.00.

'Mr. Chen makes his country feel like a lawless place suffused with corruption, paralysis and isolation. How to make art about this without paralyzing the viewer is a challenge. At his best, he does so by evoking the resilience of the individual and by countering reality with different kinds of artistry: with slow-moving images that might almost be mural-size photographs, shots of piles of detritus that resemble installation art and of people moving with the dreamlike pace (and silence) of performance art.' –Roberta Smith, New York Times

On 6 March we welcome Taiwanese artist Chen Chieh-jen to present the 2-day series Chen Chieh-jen: Reverberations in the Starr Cinema. Daring and poetic in equal measure, the striking works of Chen Chieh-jen cultivate critical reflections on structures of power, state violence and neoliberalism through his lived experiences in and with numerous marginalised communities.
Don't miss this survey of five of the artist's socially-engaged films, accompanied by a special masterclass.

Coco Fusco: Cuba: Haunted by History – Film at Tate Modern | Tate

Next Wednesday, influential artist, activist and writer Coco Fusco returns to Tate Modern to present the UK premiere of two short films, followed by a discussion.

A leading voice in feminist, decolonial and institutional critique, Fusco here turns her attention to historical brushes between poetry and politics in Cuba – the country from which she is currently denied entry. These films consider the cases of poets Heberto Padilla and Reinaldo Arenas, whose works prompted imprisonment or censorship, and the contemporary resonances and ramifications of these cases.

Hafif's Super 8 film Chris Burden (not dated) has recently been recovered and digitised just in time for our series.

Marcia Hafif: Vienna Suite – Film at Tate Modern | Tate

On Saturday 23 November, we welcome curator Sebastian Schneider (Lenbachhaus Museum, Munich) to present the first UK screenings of the films and videos of late American artist Marcia Hafif. Best known for her monochrome paintings, Hafif's films offer a different view of her practice, exploring the choreographies of everyday life, autobiography and gender.

Both screenings include extended introductions to Hafif's work, which will draw out the connections between her films, writing, painting and photography. Tickets can be purchased separately or as a package.

Talking to Jill Magid, Director of the Most Shocking Architecture Documentary, Ever

'My work is about asking questions, a process which can be exciting as well as complicated or uncomfortable. Sitting with questions, and struggling with them for a while is a good thing. The questions around copyright, about what it means when legacy such as [Luis] Barragán’s becomes thought of and treated in terms of (private) property and how we, as a society, might deal with that are important to ask. I want those questions to persist, and for all of us in this time of late capitalism to debate them. Both the film and the artwork enable that.'

Read the full interview with artist Jill Magid about her feature film The Proposal, screening Friday 8 November at Tate Modern
Tickets: bit.ly/TheProposalTate

In "The Proposal," the artist goes to audacious ends in pursuit of access to Luis Barragán's archives.
