Time: 12:00 AM - 2:30 PM
Location: National Gallery
Come and join us for a tour and a chat to explore London’s famous National Gallery from a gender perspective.
Ever asked yourselves these questions: Why so many nudes? Why so few women artists?
We will highlight some well-known and lesser-known paintings and provide a platform for dialogue on the gender-related issues that they bring to light – from beauty contests to war violence to motherhood.
We will develop and put into practice our visual literacy, and will walk away looking at the images that surround us every day – from blockbuster movies to adverts on the tube – in a very different way!
We welcome everyone, irrespective of gender, age, background… Can’t wait to hear your perspectives and re-think the history of art with you!
