This is Wolfgang Tillmans’s first ever exhibition at Tate Modern and brings together works in an exciting variety of media – photographs, of course, but also video, digital slide projections, publications, curatorial projects and recorded music – all staged by the artist in characteristically innovative style.

In Richards’ work, images and sounds are merged into highly affective video works that combine footage from a wide range of sources edited into elegant compositions. His recent projects separate these elements out again, allowing space for multi-channel audio installations that combine sound in a way that is physical and spatial. The video works convene materials according to the silent rhythms and movements of the footage they contain.
a couple years ago, I was approached by a designer about the possibility of embarking on a lo-fi print studio project in Bethnal Green. Nothing came of it but I remember having a conversation with him about a group of zimbabwean screen printers, also known as the Highfield Arts Club who print from the back of a bus, make their ink from old rubber tyres and cut their stencils by hand. There is an article in Eye Magazine, Issue 71, for further research but I found a few images for stencil inspiration.
