From July 24th, Tate Modern invites visitors of all ages to transform the floor of the Turbine Hall into an ever-changing work of art. This extraordinary invitation is part of a transformative project by artist Ei Arakawa, which launches UNIQLO Tate Play which is Tate Modern’s new free programme of playful art-inspired activities for families, in partnership with UNIQLO. 

Over the next six weeks, Mega Please Draw Freely will see thousands of visitors completely transform the Turbine Hall by covering the floor with doodles, drawings, scribbles and sketches. The floor is coated in a temporary surface to allow people of all ages to draw on it with coloured drawing materials provided for free. 

As part of the project, the public are also invited to a weekend long picnic at Tate Modern on 14 and 15 August, including special interactive performances led by Ei Arakawa. Children and young people will take the lead, guiding the artist and other participants in a dance to create a collective circle drawing across the Turbine Hall floor. For the first time at Tate Modern, and in the UK, visitors will also experience the special recreation of Gutai artist Motonaga Sadamasa’s famous performance work, Work (Smoke) 1957.
