Steve MᶜQueen Year 3 is a partnership between Tate, Artangel and A New Direction.
Turner Prize-winning artist and Oscar-winning filmmaker Steve McQueen, together with Tate Britain, Artangel and A New Direction, unveil one of the most ambitious visual portraits of citizenship ever undertaken in one of the world’s largest cities.
An epic portrait of the future of London – this vast new artwork captures thousands of local children in a milestone year in their development. 76,146 Year 3 pupils from 1,504 London schools will be featuring in 3,128 class photographs in the Duveen Galleries at Tate Britain from 12 November 2019 – 03 May 2020.
Over the past week, you may have been aware of Year 3 class photographs popping up on over 600 billboards across London’s 33 boroughs as part of an accompanying, city-wide outdoor exhibition organised by Artangel, which continues across London until 18 November 2019. Please go and have a look if you have time. We will be taking the current Y4 classes for a follow up session at Tate Britain in February. This pic of Steve McQueen and our pictures to his right!
