Michael Barnes-Wynters: Dutty Lingo

Working with artist and producer Michael Barnes-Wynters on a live installation in the Oil Tanks of the Tate Modern as part of Undercurrent: young people’s festival.

Tate’s Oil Tanks have beeb unused since the former power station was turned into an art gallery, and now have been opened as part of a 15 week line-up of performance and events. Part of this includes Dutty Lingo on the 23rd by Michael Barnes-Wynters for a one day event exploring the sub-cultural lexicon of urban tribes.

The project is In association with The Museum of Club Culture, a one-off collaboration between young art collectives from the north and south of the UK including manchester’s Young Identity Poets and Doodlebug visual agitators Pablo Melchor Bedos Mavanubu, Dr J’s Time machine, guest Jerry Dammers of The Specials, and of course AlbinoMosquito. Check out the trailer here…

We will be providing a VJ set of a series of talking heads collected by Michael himself, from around the Manchester Scene. Connect to the 50 year celebration of the independence of Jamaica the ‘heads’ give an collated opinion on how Jamaican Culture has influenced them, their work, and the scene around them.

The show will be taking place on the 23rd of August, from 11-5 Free of Charge. You can also get the opportunity attend a talk by Michael Barnes-Wynters where he will discuss his work in The Tate Artist Talks on the same day. Have a look on the Tate website to find out more about The Tate Tanks and the other events. `in the meantime grab up on Twitter and Facebook to keep ahead of latest updates.
