Explore London along the Thames as Fauvist painter André Derain did in 1906. Taking inspiration from Derain’s painting of The Pool of London, a section of the river Thames where ships unloaded cargo and goods were traded, discover historical landmarks in a brightly coloured world, like the painting itself. Starting at London Bridge, visit historic sites such as The Tower of London; climb The Queen’s Pipe chimney at St Katherine’s Dock; and descend into the forgotten river Nickinger that runs beneath the city whilst you search for the pigments Monsieur Derain used in his paintings.

Tate Worlds are exciting Minecraft ‘maps’ that present virtual environments inspired by artworks from Tate’s collection. The maps allow players of Minecraft to explore a range of paintings and sculpture, undertaking various activities and challenges that relate to the themes of the artworks, or exploring how they were made. Tate has teamed up with some of Minecraft’s best known mapmakers to create these virtual artworks, offering a unique combination of art, history and adventure.

Tate Worlds is a collaboration with The Common People: Adam Clarke, Lead Artist and Producer, with Games and Concept designer: Dragnoz and Minecraft builders: Kupo,Featherblade and additional redstone by Sparks
