Tate Britain Late

Late at Tate Britain: Rang Baranga

Join our blue, orange, red and yellow family as we masquerade around Tate Britain to celebrate the start of summer

This August Late at Tate Britain takes inspiration from Rang Baranga by Rasheed Araeen. ‘Rang baranga’ is an Urdu term meaning ‘of many colours’ which we’re exploring in different ways with a programme united by the spirit and colour palette of the artwork.
