Late at Tate Britain: Flux

Explore and question how gender constructs influence our everyday lives

The last Late at Tate Britain of the year explores the theme of gender fluidity.

Come how you feel – femme, masc, a bit of both, or neither. Join a packed evening of sound, visuals and discussion, all inspired by the Tate collection.
