The group in Rotterdam consists of five young, ambitious creatives with a diverse disciplined background. Lisa McCray, Fatima Jabor, Jaime Le Bleu, Cengiz Mengüç and Charmaine van Leyden will start working, as a group, in London for a week using Tate Exchange – the project space on the fifth floor of the new Tate Modern building – as their home base. They will be immersed in the metropolitan culture of London and will actively research the city by seeing, feeling, tasting and intensively experiencing it. They will also learn about the role of art in society and the function of institutions, such as TENT and Tate, in a local context. Together with members of Tate Collective, artists, and makers from different disciplines, they will work on a public programme in which your findings are presented. In November, the group reconvenes at TENT to work on the same topic in relation to the city of Rotterdam:
“Where does culture happen?”

London: 15 October – 21 October
Rotterdam: 20 November – 24 November
