Late at Tate Britain April explores the Ancient Egyptians's relationship with mortality and its parallels with contemporary society, inspired by Marguerite Humeau. Ancient Egyptians looked at preserving life through spirituality. In our current age, do we try to achieve this through digital formats?

The series will kick off on 6 April with an evening exploring the current Art Now installation by Marguerite Humeau. The work, entitled Echoes, is conceived as a confrontation between life and death, with the gallery transformed into part temple, part laboratory for the industrial production of an elixir for eternal life.
