HYPERLINK, a major arts festival organized by and run for young people, will be taking place at the Tate Modern from 26th-28th April.
The festival, to be housed in The Tanks and Turbine Hall, will involve installations, performances, and workshops by musicians, visual artists, and designers. Hyperlink is the first of eight festivals organized by Circuit, a national youth network for the visual arts supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
Hyperlink will feature live performances from acts such as rapper Akala, spoken word sensation George the Poet, MC Lady Leshurr, rising R&B star Angel, and Mercury Prize nominee Sway. The musicians will be collaborating with visual artists in their live performances, including urban artist and graphic designer Funny Tummy, London-based artist Barka, and Japanese modern-day surrealist Tokio Aoyama.
As well as live music there will be workshops run by fashion photographer Rankin and zine-makers the It’s Nice That collective, a minimalist music exhibition by Stooki, and interactive artwork including an installation by Susan Stockwell that will fill the Turbine Hall with a flotilla of handmade boats.
