For October, Late at Tate Britain is inspired by the London: 1968 display, which features works that were influenced by protests that happened in May 1968 in Paris and around the world. Student protesters questioned social, political and cultural establishments. This led artists to question what they were producing.

Join us to reflect on politics and activism in the current age, with a mixture of music, discussion, workshops and performance.
