Tate Britain unveils The Squash, an immersive installation combining performance and sculpture by 2016 Turner Prize nominee Anthea Hamilton. The artist has designed seven costumes in collaboration with Loewe to be worn by the performers. The Squash has been created for the annual Tate Britain Commission, which invites contemporary British artists to create new artwork in response to the grand space of the Duveen Galleries.

Hamilton has designed seven costumes in collaboration with Creative Director Jonathan Anderson from the fashion house Loewe that incorporate the colours and shapes of varieties of squash or pumpkin. Performers will select a costume each day, informing and reflecting their presentation of the character as they inhabit the space, for six-month performance; from March 22 to October 7, 2018. Over 7,000 white floor tiles have been laid to span the length of the Duveens and encase a series of large structures that serve as podiums for art pieces from Tate’s collection, chosen by Hamilton for their organic forms and colours.
