To celebrate the opening, the new Tate Modern will stay open until 10pm each evening this weekend for a series of special events, supported by Uniqlo.
The centrepiece will be a specially-commissioned choral work by artist Peter Liversidge, performed at 5pm on Saturday 18 June by over 500 singers from community choirs across London.
Free screenings of film and video works from Tate's collection will be held throughout each day in the newly refurbished Starr Cinema, while special events for young people and families will take place across the weekend.
