Gallery Lates

Every month we’re bringing you specially themed Friday Lates that offer the chance to experience the Gallery in an entirely unique way. Start your weekend with exclusive after-hours access to exhibitions, performances, music, workshops and talks – all with a drink in-hand.

The Female of the Species

1 September

Join us for a night celebrating deadly females, dangerous women and queen bees. Taking inspiration from Cristofano Allori’s Judith, come and discover the unsung sheroes of time gone by with feminist art project, Herstory and draw Mother Nature’s matriarchs with live animal drawing from Wild Life Drawing.

Feast

6 October

Taking inspiration from Antonio de Pereda’s Two Figures at a Kitchen Table, we’ll be hosting a multi-sensory evening where you’ll have the chance to get up close and personal to the exquisite still life details in our collection. Make your own edible masterpiece, take part in a feasting-inspired installation and learn about the stories behind food in art. Expect historical titbits to feed your mind and your stomach.

Death: A Portrait

3 November

Within the Gallery we are presented with many faces of death, from the moving to the macabre. Whether it’s the Mausoleum where the founders of the Gallery are buried or commemorative portraits, join us to explore our complex and contradictory attitudes through the paintings in our collection and the Gallery’s own architecture. Expect everything from talks and tours to death cafés, memento mori workshops and macabre salons.
