From Saturday 1st April, visitors to Tate Modern will be able to view the work of ‘Britain’s Best Young Artist’ as the winning painting of the 2023 CBBC series goes on public display at the gallery. Chloe, aged 14 from Newcastle, competed against 26 young artists from across the UK to be crowned the winner of ‘Britain’s Best Young Artist’ earlier this month. The final episode of the series saw three finalists each participate in a masterclass with a professional artist at Tate Modern, before returning to the studio to create their final work. Chloe’s winning painting titled ‘Homage’ 2022 was selected by presenters Sadie Clayton and Ricky Martin, alongside Tate’s Director of Learning, Mark Miller.

Describing the work, Chloe said 

My painting is about my appreciation of my home, not only my home in the UK but my home in Africa, and how I cherish the memories that are enclosed in the four walls I inhabit daily. It’s about the beauty of the mundane and how something so ordinary can mean so much to someone.

She said that having her work displayed at Tate Modern was 

a dream of mine! I’m grateful so many people get to see my work and interpret it how they want to.

Visitors will be able to view Chloe’s work on the Level 4 concourse of Tate Modern’s Natalie Bell Building between 1st – 30th April 2023. MORE: HERE

Easter holidays at Tate

Along with seeing Homage 2022, there are a range of free activities for families taking place at Tate sites throughout the Easter Holidays. For those looking to follow in Chloe’s artistic footsteps, Tate Draw now has an additional space on Level 3 in Tate Modern’s Blavatnik Building, offering a brand-new area for children to get creative. Digital sketch pads allow visitors to create their own drawings inspired by the art in the galleries, with all finished sketches projected onto the gallery wall. Participants can also download and save their work of art to a phone or order a custom T-shirt to proudly wear their creations at home.

For those who want to get active, this season’s UNIQLO Tate Play: Movement of the Earth Workshop invites visitors to move around a giant artwork in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hallwith artist and choreographer Vidya Patel, who is known for merging classical Indian and contemporary dance. The workshop will take place alongside the current Hyundai Commission, a vast, ceiling-height artwork created by artist Cecilia Vicuña, inspired by the Amazon rainforests. People of all ages can take part in craft and movement activities that explore themes around the environment and life cycles. The whole family is invited to dance and have fun or get hands on and transform natural and recycled materials into hanging items to wear while they move about. On the final day of the programme, visitors can watch the work come to life in a special performance by Vidya Patel with accompanying BSL interpretation and audio description. Exploring Vidya’s connection to the natural world though movement, music and spoken word, the performance encourages viewers to think about their connection and responsibility to the earth.

Over at Tate Britain, families can squeeze and roll their way through a lump of clay in the temporary Clay Studio, moulding it into something that has inspired them in the gallery. Open daily, Play Studio offers children the chance to dress up, play with sand or make sounds. To celebrate Art Fund’s The Wild Escape, why not choose an animal from the gallery’s collection displays and use the materials on offer to imagine and tell their story. Elsewhere, young readers can immerse themselves in children’s books by writers of colour in Story Space, a library celebrating a diverse range of talent and helping everyone to see themselves reflected in what they read.
