This Friday, music lovers and rave aficionados can take a nostalgic and exciting journey through the history of British, underground dance culture, as part of a night of free, live performances and installations at the Tate Britain in London.

WARP x TATE is an explosive collaboration between the British independent record label and contemporary artist Jeremy Deller, who we featured earlier this year on the Zeitgeist blog for his impressive pavilion at the Venice Biennale.

Taking inspiration from Deller’s pivotal work The History of the World (1997-2004) – in which the artist traces the cultural and sociopolitical influence of Brass Bands and Acid House music, in a graphic wall projection – the evening will feature a specially commissioned installation by experimental artist Daniel Lopatin, also known as Oneohtrix Point Never, as well as a performance by Deller himself entitled “Acid Brass” – for which he will be accompanied by a live brass band.

Adding to the excitement, design duo Hellicar & Lewis will present “A tribute to the Roland 808 and 303” – an interactive celebration of the synthesizers that gave Acid House its unique and distinctive sound – while Palace Skateboards is set to deface selected works from the Tate Collection under the theme “Civil Unrest”.

Entrance is free, with proceedings starting from 6.30pm onwards – be sure to arrive early to avoid disappointment. Read more about the event via the WARP x TATE website. – Samantha Fox
