AttRAct Late

Decipher the links between Rubens and the many artists he inspired at this Late event, featuring interactive creative workshops, 17th-century selfies, music by The Coveryard, a Whispering Wall, feasts and much more.

Join us on a mission through the ‘Rubens and His Legacy’ exhibition to unlock the secrets of this celebrated painter, diplomat and spy. Learn the secrets of Peter Paul Rubens by listening to sound-artist Lisa Hall’s ‘Whispering Wall’ and spoken word-artist Talia Randall. Decode secret typography with Barbara Ryan, discover Rubens’s role as a manipulator of emotions through paint and become a 17th-century character and take your own selfies. Move to the tunes of DJ TOMKI and experience a live fusion of sound by The Coveryard, plus so much more…

This Late event is curated by attRAct, the RA’s Programme for Young People, and is suitable for 16-25 year olds only.
