FREE Family Fun at Tate Modern. Go dotty for Yayoi Kusama’s obliteration room this summer!

Tate Modern, Bankside

Make your mark on art!

From 23 July - 29 August

Best Bits

Schools are out and everyone is invited to Tate Modern for some hands-on art.

Come and transform a completely white domestic apartment into a sea of colourful dots: Yayoi Kusama’s The obliteration room is an interactive artwork for all ages. Visitors will be given a sheet of colourful ‘dot’ stickers to help bring the space to life.

As well as having a chance to cover every available surface in the space with bright circular stickers, families will be able to create their own work of art to add to an ever-growing garden in the Turbine Hall.

This activity is part of the regular Uniqlo Tate Play family offer, available every weekend and every school holidays at Tate Modern. They offer free, lively, drop-in workshops where families can get creative, inspired by what’s on display in the galleries!
