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 Simmonsâ€™s first film, The Music of Regret. Later the Tate Modern cafÃ© 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 Simmonsâ€™s 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 CafÃ©: 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.
