Piero's The Baptism of Christ

False identities and fake news

How do notions of identity shape our response to works of art and how is this undermined if what we see is not truthful?

This series of talks starts from the premise that paintings do not tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Lunchtime talks

Focus in on one painting with our talks in the Gallery, or explore wider themes in the collection at our in-depth theatre talks.
