Discover the drama of Ribera: Art of Violence after-hours in this special Gallery Late, featuring live music and dance set amongst Ribera’s paintings, workshops, talks and more. We bring together a curator, an anthropologist, a drag queen, and queer visual artists and musicians as the worlds of 17th century Spain and 21st century London collide.
