UBS Openings: Saturday Live


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Taking place every few months, UBS Openings: Saturday Live is a series of day-long events which aim to bring the best in contemporary film, performance, discussion and music to Tate Modern.

The first UBS Openings: Saturday Live sees artist-activists The Guerrilla Girls make a rare appearance in the UK as they give a multimedia presentation on the Tate Collection displays. This is followed by the European premiere of American photographer Laurie Simmonsâs first film, The Music of Regret. Later the Tate Modern café is transformed into a cocktail lounge for an evening of music with Janine Rostron's show PLANNINGTOROCK and guest DJs.

3pm-4.30pm: The Guerrilla Girls: Your Cultural Conscience

6pm: Laurie Simmons: The Music of Regret
Tate Modern presents the European premiere of renowned American photographer Laurie Simmonsâs first film, a three-act cinematic musical starring Meryl Streep, members of the Alvin Ailey II dance company, plus a cast of vintage puppets and ventriloquist dummies.

8pm-midnight Live in the Café: PLANNINGTOROCK
PLANNINGTOROCK is a one-woman show by Berlin-based Janine Rostron. Rostron, whose album was recently released on the Chicks on Speed label, presents an audiovisual experience that is both darkly baroque and seductively humorous.
