Steve McQueen will invite all Year 3 primary school classes in London to be photographed for a Tate Britain installation. The project will potentially include 115,000 children across London’s 2,410 primary schools; each photo will include the children and their teachers.
In bringing together so many of these class photos from a single year, the work will embody the diversity of the city in which the artist grew up, as well as the potential of the next generation who will shape London’s future.
