Full programme

This year, Late at Tate Britain re-launches with a new series taking place over April, May and June exploring the theme of speculation. What does it mean to speculate? Consider, wonder, suppose or propose. Join us as we question, transform and disrupt ideas around art and creativity.

For the second event of the series titled DISRUPT, join in with alternative ways of experiencing Tate Britain and Tate's collection. Sound researchers, theorists, musicians and performance artists will present alternative interpretations of the gallery environment to disrupt the way you think about and experience art and artists.
