About

‘Raphael: Emerging artists respond’ was a 2021 British Museum exhibition drawing on the parallels between Raphael's artistic practice and development to those of contemporary artists. 

Artists who featured in the exhibition join us at the Gallery to reflect on how they relate to artists such as Raphael, how their own work creates a dialogue with their legacy, and respond to themes such as idealised beauty, artistic development, and the iconic status of Renaissance artists.

‘Raphael: Emerging artists respond’ featured Erin Adderley, Crystal Chia, Yulin Huang, Hanne Peeraer, Ti-Jean Roberts and Eva Suhajek.

Before this discussion in Room 60, you might also enjoy the panel discussion with Sarah Jaffray in the Sainsbury Wing Theatre.
