Join in as The Tate unlocks the secrets of the archive, shedding light on the mysterious occult collection that lies within.

To mark the launch of her new book, Visions of the Occult: An Untold Story of Art and Magic, Tate Archivist Victoria Jenkins invites us to step behind the veil and discover a remarkable array of clandestine artworks and ephemera.

Inside the Tate Archive, you will explore books, drawings, photographs, and other unusual objects that delve into the themes of witchcraft, alchemy, secret societies, folklore and pagan rituals, demonology, spells and magic, psychic energies, astrology, and tarot.

Afterwards, experience immersive Psychedelic Solar projectors from Dottintheshark (includes flashing lights). Then join us in the Clore Auditorium for a panel event, performances and a screening of David Stean's film Puppy The Goblin, with special guests: Lally MacBeth, Emma Sharples and Jamie Sutcliffe.

Expect the unexpected – and if you think you know Tate artists, think again.

The curated display of occult artworks and ephemera will also be available to the public 12.00–14.00 on Sunday 20 November in the Library and Archive Reading Rooms. Free - no booking required.
