Audio-described tour

Explore this years Tate Britain Commission with trained picture describers giving a detailed description of the works.

The annual commission invites artists to make a work in response to the unique architecture of the Duveen Galleries at the heart of Tate Britain. This year’s commission is created by Mike Nelson. Mike Nelson has been nominated twice for the Turner Prize (2001, 2007) and has represented Britain at the Venice Biennale. He constructs large-scale, site-specific sculptural environments that often arise from a period of living and working in a particular location. His works fuse literary, filmic, socio-political and cultural references to create carefully orchestrated tableaux.

Please meet in the Manton Studio for Tea and Coffee from 10.30am before the tour.
