Lecture Series Masters of Light – Day 2

Sun 28 May | 10.30am–12.30pm

Across two Sundays, this lecture series explores how light takes centre-stage in critically acclaimed paintings, sculptures, photographs, films and installations by ground-breaking artists through the centuries.

Day 1 focuses on historical European art, and Day 2 on modern and contemporary art, incorporating an Indigenous lens. Presented by four passionate art and design scholars, this series accompanying our current Light from Tate: 1700s to Now exhibition is not to be missed.

Like to attend? Come to both or pick your favourite day. Scroll down for more info on tickets or click here for a programme overview of Day 1.
