Late at Tate Britain: Waves, 7 June 2019

Join us for a night exploring the past, present and future of women and non-binary artists This Late at Tate Britain is inspired by the 60 Years display that highlights women's contribution to British art. Through workshops, performances and talks, we invite you to the alternative history presented in the display. We ask: what does the art of women and non-binary people look like today? What is the relationship between an artist’s identity and the institution? What does the future hold for these artists? Performance Cry Me a River Room 1840 18.00–21.30 A durational cabaret performance by Tamara MacArthur exploring the boundaries of intimacy, longing and futility. The set, an exploded drawing, depicts a scene of watery chaos, over-spilling with comic tragedy.
