The Tate Gallery is one of the new group of companies to open a popup shop at Old Street Underground Station, in an initiative curated by Appear Here. During the next week Tate will sell items from its gallery shops, in addition to organising live events - including life drawing - full details below.
"Part retail unit, part events space, Tate’s pop-up in Old Street Underground station offers a new way of experiencing Tate beyond the gallery walls. An events programme, curated by Tate Collective, will see the shop transformed into a life-drawing studio, cinema, workshop and forum. A curated retail selection offers prints, local publications and Tate products, as well as Tate’s own ground coffee.
The window display will feature a specially commissioned Matisse-themed installation by PAPER Collective.
