Interested in finding out more about sound artists, performance artists and artists who use radio to make artwork? Well now’s your chance! RadioCity is a special season of radio, sound art, performance and broadcast at Tate Britain.
There’s loads going on, you can find all about it here! Below are some of the highlights!
So, do you think Tate Britain is a bit quiet? Meet artist Boff Whalley who will be filling areas of the Gallery (those normally quiet, hushed spaces) with singing voices in Singing in Space. He will be making connections between artists, the building, artwork and people, through songs and the joy of singing.
Join Scottee, the big hearted, sequinned artist who will be asking what songs are important to you! You can be the centre of his performance as part of his residency, Towerblock Tracks. If there was one song you would listen to forever what would it be?

Knock Knock! Who’s there? Evelyn of course! Meet Evelyn, a young art enthusiast invited by artists Serge Vuille and Nefeli Skarmea to be in residence at Tate Britain for a weekend. She’ll be chatting to artists and finding out all about how they work and what they make! When Evelyn isn’t on the radio, you can hang out with her and the other artists! What one question would you ask an artist if you had the chance? Perhaps you can give Evelyn some ideas in the comments below…..

Knock Knock, Evelyn who?
Where would you send your ears if you could detach them from your body? Visit the pop-up ear factory at RadioCity for a chat about detachable ears with artist Antoine Bertin. Make a replica of one of your ears and leave it behind at RadioCity.

Well if that hasn’t intrigued you, I don’t know what will! So after you have stuffed yourself with festive food, come down to Tate Britain to walk it off and explore sound art, performance and radio! What else do you want from the holidays!?
Can’t get down to the gallery? Tune into recorded broadcasts of RadioCity on Resonance 104.4 FM or online at resonancefm.com.
