Tate Britain Late

Late at Tate Britain: Truth

Join us to question what truth means in a post-truth world

Late at Tate Britain: Truth is inspired by Turner Prize 2018. Historically, the art prize has sparked controversy, debate and pushed boundaries. This year's exhibition has been no exception, getting us to think about power, visibility and truth. For this event our Tate Collective Producers picked up the slippery theme of ‘truth’. Expect a mix of talks, performance, workshops and music as we probe the question of what ‘truth’ might mean in a post-truth world.
