An art exhibition will literally come to life at Tate Liverpool next month as it prepares to welcome over 40 performers - including high-profile artists from the UK and Europe - as well as local community groups and young people.

As part of the gallery’s series of late-night openings, known as Late at Tate, an evening of performance, spectacle and the very best modern and contemporary art will take place on Thursday 2 July at Tate Liverpool until 9pm.

Fool Spectrum is a multi-coloured festival of performance art responding to the exhibition Colour Chart: Reinventing Colour, 1950 to Today.

Produced by Hope Street Limited in partnership with Tate Liverpool and directed by Cocoloco, performance artists will appear in unexpected places in the galleries, foyer and Albert Dock, enhanced by sound, film and digital design.

Colour Chart explores how artist’s use of paint began to change after the mid-20th Century, when notions of colour as emotive, spiritual or scientific were replaced by an accessible commercial product.

Hope Street Limited is a regularly-funded organisation of Liverpool City Council and Arts Council England.

Cocoloco is a performance company based in London, run by Trevor Stuart and Helen Statman.
