Doodle Interview with Angela Keoghan

Posted 24 February 2017 by Kat

We’re joined by Angela Keoghan, author and illustrator of Inspector Brunswick: The Case of the Missing Eyebrow (published by Tate). Take a look at her latest book that she wrote with Chris Lam Sam:

Inspector Brunswick is Angela’s first picture book. She is an illustrator and designer based in New Zealand. Her whimsical style has seen her win many awards. Her illustration is inspired by exploration, travel, nature and a library of vintage children’s books.

Hi Angela, what’s your favourite place, building or person in Inspector Brunswick?

If you were art director of an art gallery what art would you display?

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Besides drawing, what superpower or special talent would you like to have?

Where will Inspector Brunswick and Nelson’s adventures take them next?

Thanks for being our Doodle Interviewee, Angela!

Psst! Here is the mystery tour puzzle piece! Can you tell what animal it is? If you can guess, let @Tate_Publishing know (ask a parent or guardian to go onto Twitter) and be in with a chance to win a signed copy of the book! More pieces to follow….

Broadcasting from RadioCity!

Posted 8 December 2014 by Kat

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!

Radio City

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…..

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.
