Forced into closure back in March, Steve McQueen’s long-awaited retrospective exhibition at London’s Tate Modern is getting back this Friday, with extended closing date in September.
The reopened gallery will host the Turner Prize-winning artist’s show spanning 20 years, featuring 14 works including photography, film, and sculpture, charged with issues of representation, identity, and history.
“I remember my first school trip to Tate when I was an impressionable 8-year-old, which was really the moment I gained an understanding that anything is possible. As we all gradually emerge from lockdown, and in some ways begin to see the world anew, I hope visitors experience that same sense of possibility,” McQueen said, speaking about the reopening.
Catch Steve McQueen at Tate Modern this Friday 7 August. The show lasts until September 6, operating with current government guidelines, including face coverings and restricted visitor numbers to allow for social distancing.
