The EY Exhibition The Making of RodinTate Modern
London, England SE1 9TG
This major exhibition will present Auguste Rodin as a radical artist who rebelled against sculptural traditions and invented new ways of making sculpture.
This exhibition will offer a unique insight into Rodin’s processes, highlighting the crucial role of plaster in his work. Visitors will be able to meander through the exhibition, which will evoke the informal atmosphere of the studio, discovering lesser-known pieces and new aspects of Rodin’s masterpieces.
The realisation of this landmark exhibition is possible due to a unique collaboration with the Musée Rodin, who have offered Tate unprecedented access to their collection. It features over 150 works, many of which have not been seen outside of France before.
Although Rodin is best known for his bronze and marble sculptures, his genius was as a modeller, who captured movement, emotion, light and volume in pliable materials such as clay and plaster. A stockpile of plaster body parts allowed him to experiment with fragmentation, assemblage and repetition, exploring infinite groupings and poses. Unlike his predecessors, his finished works include traces of their creation, challenging conventional conceptions of beauty.

Alcotraz: Cell Block Two One TwoAlcotraz Penitentiary
Shoreditch, 212, Brick Lane
London, England E1 6SA
Hidden behind unassuming shutters lies Alcotraz, a secret prison staffed with guards to help you successfully smuggle liquor past the Warden and get it into the hands of the longest-serving inmates.
Following the recent outbreak, The Warden has re-developed the prison to ensure maximum security for inmates and staff. Grab your gang, sit in your own private cell and safely enjoy one of London's most unique cocktail experiences.
Inspired by Hollywood Movies and TV that have brought to life America's most infamous prison, Alcotraz is London's first immersive theatrical cocktail bar. From the orange jumpsuits upon entrance, to the real metallic cells, Alcotraz becomes the perfect backdrop to enjoy a drink within an epic yet intimate environment. When convicted to Alcotraz, inmates are taken into an exciting world of mischief as they are instructed by notorious bootlegger Clyde Cassidy to smuggle-in liquor to be used to make delicious, bespoke cocktails.
You won’t find a set menu of drinks here…after all, it is prison! The working inmates of Block Two One Two will be serving unique, personalised cocktails behind bars using the liquor that visiting convicts will have smuggled in and your personal tastes. As new inmates you can expect to see your illegally smuggled liquor combined with liqueurs, bitters and homemade syrups to make bespoke, contemporary and classic cocktails perfect for your time behind bars.
Be as creative as you can with your attempts to smuggle-in liquor. Alternatively, Cassidy has got the Guards on your side who have their own system for hiding contraband. Just make sure the Warden doesn’t catch you.
