Late at Tate Britain: Liquid Reflections, 1 March 2019
Join a thought-provoking evening inspired by the work of pioneering artist, Liliane Lijn
Liliane Lijn has been making art since the late 1960’s, creating and experimenting with industrial materials and artistic processes. Lijn draws from a range of ideas from science, technology, eastern philosophy to female mythology.
She is best-known for her moving art sculptures but there is so much more to find out.
