Turner Prize-winning artist and Oscar-winning filmmaker Steve McQueen has unveiled his epic portrait of London’s Year 3 pupils at the Tate Britain.
Using the traditional school class photograph, the artwork spans the length of the Sculpture Gallery and is one of the most ambitious portraits of children ever undertaken in the UK. Over 76,000 children across 1,500 schools took part in this unique piece of artwork which offers a glimpse of London’s future generations.
REAch2 Academies who took part include Aerodrome Academy, Chapel End Junior Academy, Dorothy Barley Junior Academy, Langtons Junior Academy, Robert Fitzroy Academy, St Marks CofE Academy and Tidemill Academy.
The exhibition is free and runs until 3 May 2020. Every afternoon from 14.15–17.45 during holidays and at weekends there will be large magnifiers operating in the Steve McQueen Year 3 exhibition, allowing photos at any height to be seen in greater detail.
