Each last Friday of the month, Tate Modern transforms into an artistic dancefloor fun fair, hosting concerts and activities around the current exhibitions, during the Uniqlo Tate Late. This month was Giacometti, the great sculptor.

Different kinds of workshops were open and free. The Sketching Salon, to sketch some Giacometti-esque life model or Vanitas still life to try out art. You could even discover a recreation of Giacometti's studio, imagining his work there and discovering how the studio shaped it. There was also a Philosopher's Salon, inspired by Parisian café where everyone ends up talking about life and its meaning, as well as a Death Café, which was more focused on the dark side of life.

The Hackney's Clay Collective was also showing their skills, in order to introduce the public to pottery making.

A film was also showcased: Quarta-Feira De Cinzas/Epilogue, by Rivane Neuenschwander and Cao Guimaraes. I didn't have the opportunity to see it in full but it is apparently a short video observing how ants begin their own feast to the rhythm of matchbox samba.

Finally, DJ sets were happening all over the building, with DJs Covco, Alien Jams, Pandora's Jukebox and K.Sande (Blackest Ever Black) in the Turbine Hall and DJs Adam Oko, Nadeem and Danielle in the Terrace Bar.

Next month, the focus will surely be given on Fahrelnissa Zeid, the new exhibition opening on June 13th and will happen the 30th of June. She is an abstract painter, focusing on colour and shapes.

Tate Lates are also an opportunity to save on the tickets' prices. All tickets for the current exhibitions were £10 each from 18.00 on the night.
