"The Long Weekend" at the Tate Modern

Part of The Long Weekend at the Tate Modern Set

 

At long last I have been re-united with my 18-70mm lens (it was at the repairs) , and on the way back from the shop, I stopped at the Tate Modern, and I was lucky to capture this event called "The Long Weekend". As its' name suggests, it's a long series of events with live performances and screening of films. Last night, to commemorate the 20'th anniversary of his death, Andy Warhol's first ever film "Sleep" was screened, for over 5 and a half hours, throughout the night, and the ticket holders were invited to come with their sleeping bags, and spend the night there on the floor, and many did. Here the non-stop musical performance Vexations which accompanied the film, is about to come to its end, after 18 hours, since 19.30 yesterday. On the very left, playing the piano. you can see the famous composer Michael Nyman.
