Great Double Acts with The Kills | Unlock Art | Tate

Rock band The Kills jump on a tandem to explore the art of collaboration.

Rock duo Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart, know a thing or two about creative partnership. Challenging the popular myth that art is made by solitary, angst-ridden individuals, they celebrate some of the art world’s most interesting collaborators, such as Marina Abramović and Ulay, Gilbert & George and Jake and Dinos Chapman.

‘Unlock Art’ is Tate’s new short film series, offering a witty inside track on the world of art. The Kills join forces with new Doctor Who actor Peter Capaldi, comedian Frank Skinner, Girls star Jemima Kirke and other celebrity art fans to introduce some of the big ideas that have shaped art history. A new film is released each month, with topics ranging from the history of the nude and the nature of the art market, to surrealism and Pop art.

Unlock Art is a collaboration between Tate and Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts.

Unlock Art is supported by Le Méridien (
