We are the National Gallery Young Producers and we would like to invite you to join us for an enjoyable evening exploring the very nature of identity.
On Tuesday 27 October, we’ll be hosting a free one-hour virtual panel discussion and Q&A to scratch beneath the surface of the Gallery’s collection and reveal the relationship between the pictures hanging on the walls and the people looking at them.
Drawing from their own experiences, the artist and activist Travis Alabanza, make-up star Amanda Forman and historical costumer Bernadette Banner will paint a picture of how their own identities have shaped their work and how their work has shaped them.
Composed of race, gender, sexuality and culture – our identities are unique to each of us. This evening is dedicated to celebrating them all.
This event coincides with the launch of our Young Producer audio playlist where we discuss our identities in relation to a selection of paintings in the collection.
This session will take place online via Zoom and will last about 90 minutes.
