The Depth of Darkness, the Return of the Light, Tate Britain Winter Commission
London SW1P 4RG
30 November 2019 – 26 January 2020
Tate Britain has unveiled its annual Winter Commission to transform and illuminate the gallery's façade. In anticipation of the winter solstice, Anne Hardy has taken inspiration from the rhythms of the earth and the tides of the River Thames. From 30 November 2019 to 26 January 2020, the Millbank entrance is turned into a marooned temple, appearing with tattered banners and tangled lights, while sculptural objects cascade down the steps from the shuttered central door, surrounded by an atmospheric soundscape of rain, thunder, birds and insects.

Everything Is Connected - George Eliot's Life
Sunday 10 November 2019, 9pm
Gillian Wearing celebrates George Eliot’s legacy in this new Arena documentary with an original score by Adrian Utley from Portishead.
Just as George Eliot’s Middlemarch explored the lives of everyday men and women, Gillian Wearing’s experimental film is made up of a diverse cast of people from different backgrounds, and features Jason Isaacs and Sheila Atim as the narrators. Together with writers, actors and local people from Nuneaton, Coventry and London they read extracts from George Eliot’s novels, letters and the first-hand accounts of those who knew her. This fascinating documentary paints a polyphonic and unique portrait of the novelist’s unconventional life and reveals the woman behind the literary mask.
