UNIQLO graphic T-shirt brand UT announces the launch of “Curated by Tate”, the first collection from the partnership between UNIQLO and Tate, which began in 2016. Based on the concept “Play is for everyone,” these newest additions to LifeWear showcase four striking, bold pieces of artwork that embody the spirit of play. The collection will be available in Japan from February 2024.

Partnership with Tate
Together, UNIQLO and Tate have connected millions of people through art and culture, championing a shared belief in art and play for everyone. The partnership began in 2016 with UNIQLO’s support for the opening weekend of the new Tate Modern. Following this, between 2016 and 2020, UNIQLO Tate Lates engaged new and diverse audiences in London with a series of free late-night events. In 2021, the partnership evolved to support the creation of UNIQLO Tate Play, a free family program that enables people of all ages to get creative, learn, and playfully explore art together. UNIQLO is delighted to have extended its partnership with Tate through UNIQLO Tate Play until 2029.

“Curated by Tate”: A focus on artworks that embody the spirit of play
The first collaborative UT collection between UNIQLO and Tate, “Curated by Tate”, features four artworks from artists in Tate’s collection.

  • ‘Draw Hope’ is an artwork full of playfulness by Bob and Roberta Smith, an artist, writer, musician, and advocate best known for his brightly-colored ‘slogan art’.
  • ‘Boats’, with its striking red and blue lines, is an artwork by sculptor and printmaker Nicholas Monro, whose witty and playful graphic images were inspired by the Pop Art movement’s colorful comic works.
  • ‘Orange and Red on Pink’ by abstract artist Wilhelmina Barns-Graham boldly expresses a love of life through its celebration of color, texture, energy, and vibrancy.
  • ‘Antennae with Red and Blue Dots’ by Alexander Calder, the creator of the moving sculptures known as ‘mobiles’, is a representative work from an artist known for breathing new life into contemporary art.
