Engage your senses and unleash your creativity by casting shadows and exploring enchanting light play.
Inspired by our A World in Common: Contemporary African Photography exhibition, we want you to create dream-like spiritual worlds and imagined futures using immersive light, glowing and translucent objects and mirrored surfaces. Watch as your magical scenes, shapes and textures project with light and build with shade at scale.
And that’s not all! You’ll also experience the wonder of light drawing, using torches, lasers and flashlights to create your own unique art that will light up the walls of Tate.
Under 5s can explore light, shadow and reflection through sensory play using accessible projectors and many textures, colours, mirrors and glowing objects. Even tiny changes and movements will light up the walls in a big way. Also, we’ll have plenty of soft spaces for your little ones to read and reflect, so even the youngest in the family will have a magical, illuminating experience.
Don't forget to join us at half-term in the East Tank when we'll make playing with light even bigger!
