Re.Create with Tate Britain: Music

Tate Britain

Meet 500 years of British Art, interpreted by the world's leading creatives + you

A new Tate Britain was unveiled on 19 November 2013.

To celebrate we're asking leading figures from the worlds of cooking, fashion, poetry, film, photography, music and comedy to share the creative processes behind their own work, inspired by 500 years of British Art.

RE.CREATE with Tate Britain is a new partnership with Google.

We invite you to draw inspiration from 500 years of British Art, then compose something new to share with friends on Google+, Facebook and Twitter with #tatebritain
