Tim Marlow, artistic director for London's Royal Academy of Arts, chooses the best exhibitions to see this month, presented by Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
I n collaboration with Tate Britain, Artangel and A New Direction, renowned British artist and filmmaker, Steve McQueen is presenting Steve McQueen: Year 3 – a city-wide collective class album.
Born in London himself in 1969, the artist has photographed an entire year group of school children - 115,000 seven-year-olds, capturing a moment of transition and a milestone in their education and development as they joined a new class in September this year.
The project will be presented at Tate Britain in a large-scale installation which will illustrate the diversity of the pupils and present a portrait of a coming London generation. In his words: ‘There’s an urgency to reflect on who we are and our future […] to have a visual reflection on the people who make this city work.’
Steve McQueen: Year 3 will be on view in the Duveen Galleries at Tate Britain from November 2019 to May 2020.
