The Tate Modern is one of the top ten art museums in the world according to Reuters. Toni-Lee exhibited her sideshow banners, portraits of sideshow performers, and a video installation at the Tate Modern’s new space The Tanks. The mass participation, one day event, Undercurrent: Tracey Moberly’s TWEET-ME-UP!, aimed to promote the acceptance of individuality and freedom of personal expression. The Undercurrent festival is part of the Tate Modern’s Art In Action. Evan Wilder invited Toni-Lee to be part of the exhibition.
The projected artwork created an installation that constantly transformed within the space and it also included projected texts, tweets and other social networking sites such as Instagram, YouTube and Soundcloud.
August 24th was also the “International Day Against Intolerance, Discrimination and Violence based on Musical Preferences, Lifestyle and Dress Code”. This designation was created to support the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. Sophie Lancaster and her boyfriend were severely beaten in 2007 by strangers because they were dressed as “Goths.”
