Late at Tate: April is the first of the Speculate series and explores the theme ‘question’. Challenge the way you engage with the gallery space through artist installations, performance, discussion and digital. Responding to Tate Britain and the Tate collection, a mixture of artists, musicians, digital makers and performers will encourage you to explore and question what the gallery space means to you.
What Am I Looking At?
Act 1: Q with no A
As an exploration of the space and the non-spaces in Tate Britain through performance and props, Tate Collective and artist Jenny Moore ask without words – where are we? What are we doing here? What are we meant to be doing here?
