Perfect for a special night out!

Enjoy the WAG’s signature dinner and tour program, featuring a three-course meal, followed by an inspiring tour in the exhibition galleries.

On Friday, August 19 we’ll be exploring Esmaa Mohamoud: To Play in the Face of Certain Defeat, a celebration of diversity and an urgent call to action around issues of racial marginalization.

Artist Esmaa Mohamoud explores the ways in which Black bodies at once appear—and yet are rendered metaphorically invisible—within the spaces they navigate. She re-examines understandings of contemporary Blackness, questioning the definitions of Blackness as a colour and shade, and/or as a societal or cultural construction.
