Hyperlink is an arts-based festival making a 2013 debut at London’s Tate Modern Gallery, consisting of performances and workshops by musicians, visual artists and designers, developed and produced by and for young people. The three-day event is being held in the Tanks and Turbine Hall in the world’s most visited modern art gallery from the 26th-28th April 2013. Appearances from UK urban greats such as AkalaLady LeshurrAngel and Mercury Prize nominee and MOBO award winning Sway are to be expected, alongside the hottest name in spoken word: George the Poet. Each musical performance will collaborate with a visual artist, among those are: Rihanna commissioned urban artist, illustrator and graphic designer Funny TummyBarka, a London-based artist previously working with Adidas and Japanese psych pop oil painter Tokio Aoyama.
In addition to live music, there will be artist-run workshops, installations and interactive artworks throughout the weekend. These workshops will give audiences the chance to get involved with the creative side of things, guided by fashion and music’s top artists. Hyperlink is the first of eight festivals around the country happening as part of Circuit, a new national youth network for the visual arts. Circuit aims to reach 80,000 young people aged 15-25 over four years in an attempt to get them more involved in art.
