National Museum Cardiff and Artes Mundi are excited to announce Lates: PITCH BLACK, an online festival of events that will celebrate Blackness as boundless and infinite.

Alongside these commissions, Lates: PITCH BLACK will present film screenings, DJ sets, exclusive Black History tours of the National Museum of Wales Collections and extras from the Artes Mundi 9 exhibition.
