The Tate Year 3 Project with Turner Prize and Oscar-winning artist, Steve McQueen, is a major new artwork, which will culminate in one of the most ambitious schools projects that London has ever seen.
Sinai School Year 3 pupils were invited, alongside every Year 3 class, across London to take part in the largest group portrait ever made.
This will be an epic picture of our city’s pupils and our rich civic diversity in a unique programme for London’s seven and eight-year-olds to explore their hopes and futures in an entirely free to access programme focussed on identity, belonging, inclusion and citizenship.
Today we welcomed a Tate photographer into school to take class photographs for the artist to form a vast exhibition of tens of thousands of Year 3 pupils. The photographs will be centre stage for six months next year in the prestigious Duveen Galleries at Tate Britain.
By taking part, our pupils will see themselves in one of the most compelling British artworks of our time at the heart of the nation’s collection.
