Organised by Art UK
Join Art UK and the Cooper Gallery in exploring artworks from their collection.
About this event
Art Unlocked is an 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 Natalie Murray, Collections and Exhibitions Manager, for an exciting exploration of some notable works from this collection on 6th September 2023, 5:30pm. In this talk, discover how the individual tastes and motivations of Barnsley’s collectors have created distinct and remarkable groups of artworks within the collection.
Art Unlocked is delivered over Zoom Webinar and can be accessed via the event page once you have registered. There will be a short Q&A session after the talk.
The talk is free but there is the option to donate to the Cooper Gallery, and all donations are greatly appreciated.
