A gallery-wide takeover inspired by Patrick Heron

Blink and you'll miss this eye opening gallery take over from Tate Collective, in response to the new Patrick Heron exhibition.

Looking is more interesting than doing anything else.

Patrick Heron

See the galleries in a new light with performance, workshops and interventions throughout the day. Look out for dancers across the day, improvising with Heron-inspired props. Get your face stamped with Heron shapes and tones or mix a custom paint swatch to capture your character in a colour. Before you leave, take some time to contemplate in the Heron exhibition and use our prompts to think about the art in new ways.

This event has been programmed by young people aged 16–25 from our Tate Collective team.
