There’s nothing like starting off a Monday watching some live art. Tate Collective London has commissioned the street art collective Drips and Runs to create a collaborative live mural in 3 hours inspired by their experience of the “EY Exhibition: The World Goes Pop,” currently on view. The show focuses on how Pop Art has directly influenced street and graffiti artists around the world. It’s another way the museum is connecting to a younger and global audience through technology. Future programs from the collective, whose goal is to unlock the museum for young people age 15-25 through free events and festivals, aim to continue the dialogue.
