Serpentine South Gallery Free

Timed tickets for press screenings of Grenfell by Steve McQueen.

About the Artwork: In December 2017, artist and filmmaker Steve McQueen (b. 1969, London, UK) made an artwork in response to the fire that took place earlier that year on 14 June at Grenfell Tower in North Kensington, West London. 72 people died in the tragedy. Filming the tower before it was covered with hoarding, McQueen sought to record it so that it would not be forgotten.

Content note: Visitors are advised that the film contains close-up aerial imagery of the tower six months after the fire. This includes views inside the building and contractors at work. Some visitors may find the imagery upsetting. There will be a space to pause, rest and reflect in the galleries.

Important: The preview screenings of Grenfell will take place at 30 minutes past the hour. This work is intended to be seen from the start, so unfortunately latecomers cannot be admitted. The film is 24 minutes long. Doors open fifteen minutes before the screening time.

Booking a ticket: Please book a timed slot in advance and arrive with your mobile ticket or printed e-booked ticket.

Screenings take place at Serpentine South Gallery Kensington Gardens, London, W2 3XA
