A gallery-wide takeover inspired by Virginia Woolf

Join us as we take over Tate St Ives in response to Virginia Woolf: An Exhibition Inspired by her Writings.

Check out film, performance, music, workshops and more as we activate the gallery and respond to key themes in Virginia Woolf’s work.

A curated selection of submissions will be featured in a participatory video installation at the U Studio event on March 17th at Tate St Ives.

Please make sure your video is:

  • 30 seconds in length
  • Landscape
  • Shot in one static position
