Organised by Art UK
Art Unlocked is a new online event series brought to you by Art UK in collaboration with Bloomberg Philanthropies. Each week, different museum and gallery curators and directors from across the UK will deliver a 30-minute talk on selected works from their collection.
For our latest talk, join Art UK and Jennifer Scott, Sackler Director of Dulwich Picture Gallery, for an exciting exploration of some notable works from this London-based collection on 16 June 2021, 5:30pm.
Art Unlocked is delivered over Zoom Webinar and has live subtitling. You will be sent the link to join a few days before the talk is scheduled to take place.
The talk is free but there is the option to donate to Art UK and Dulwich Picture Gallery alongside your ticket. Any donations are much appreciated and go towards supporting the UK's national collection.
About Dulwich Picture Gallery
Dulwich Picture Gallery, founded in 1811, is the world’s first purpose-built public art gallery. It cares for and displays an outstanding collection of Old Master paintings within Sir John Soane’s pioneering architecture. As an independent gallery, it pursues its founders’ purpose of presenting art ‘for the inspection of the publick’ while engaging as many people as possible, of all ages and backgrounds, through a creative programme. Entering the gallery space visitors discover a surprising and contemplative experience that encourages the discovery of personal connections with historic works of art – a place to Find Yourself in Art.
