On the Framing of Women

Book Now

Join us for this after-hours exclusive view of Reframed: The Woman in the Window. This event will feature the exhibition's curator Dr Jennifer Sliwka and National Portrait Gallery curator Dr Flavia Frigeri in conversation.

This talk will use the current exhibition as a talking point for exploring the representation of women in the history of art. The talk will also discuss recent and forthcoming projects which seek to recover the identities and voices of women in the arts, providing living artists and sitters with greater visibility.
