The newly reopened Tate Britain has teamed up with Warp Records for a free evening of performances and installations, inspired by former Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller. Focusing on the artist's 'History of the World' piece, which shows a diagram of Acid House's relationship with brass bands, the evening will feature live performances by Jeremy Deller's Acid Brass collective and Warp Records' patten.

London's CHELSEA Space Gallery has just opened a new exhibition dedicated to the American letterpress art of Hatch Show Print, based in Nashville, Tennessee. Established in 1879, well before TV advertising and the internet, Hatch Show Print used their bold letterpress designs to promote Country, Americana, Blues and Jazz musicians. Their bright and colourful artworks have featured the likes of Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong and Hank Williams.
Though best known for their work with musicians, Hatch Show Print originally began by making posters for religious meetings, local businesses and political rallies. Nashville Calling features archive artefacts, photographs, film and many of the signature poster designs created by the company from the 1920s to the present day. The exhibition explores Hatch's unique history and positioning as an information network, universally respected art and design agency and cultural icon.
Nashville Calling will run until 14th December 2013, and will be accompanied by a series of talks, lectures and music events to celebrate Hatch Show Print and its history. As with each exhibition at the CHELSEA Space gallery, a new illustrated publication will accompany the show.

Artist Horace Panter will feature as part of new exhibition The Writing Is On The Wall, hosted at London's Strand Gallery from today. Also known for being the bassist with The Specials, Horace's bold Pop style paintings come from a belief that "anything or anyone can be idolised or placed centre stage" and achieve their look through "a lightness of touch and a palette favouring primary colours".
The exhibition will take place from the 5th - 10th November, and is presented in collaboration with Sheaffer penmakers, who are celebrating their 100th anniversary.
