A visual garnish freshly added to your jerk chicken festivitiesThe Notting Hill Carnival will be in full swing this weekend, but often forgotten is the history behind the glitter, feathers and floats. The festival was born as a celebration of the abolition of the slave trade and slavery. The Tate is showcasing a number of performances created by artists Hew Locke and Marion Griffith, with architectural designs by Gia Wolff and soundscape from Dubmorphology. This politically conscious investigation into the festival adds another layer to the incredible Notting Hill vibe, and is not to be missed.
