Event description

Description

An opportunity to be guided through our brand new exhibition Refugees: The Lives of Others, two exhibitions exploring the contribution of German refugee artists to 20th century British art, by the exhibition curator Sarah MacDougall.

Our Learning Team will also discuss learning opportunities for your students including:

  • Curriculum linked Primary school sessions on Portraiture

  • Curriculum linked Secondary school sessions on the First World War, the rise of Nazi Germany and the impact on artists at the time

  • Free learning resources

  • Trial of our new learning app

  • Identity and Migration outreach sessions

The work in our top gallery by Eva Frankfurther focuses on portraiture with the themes: identity, relationships and migration. Her portraits reflect the ethnically diverse, largely immigrant population of London in the 1950s.

The gallery downstairs includes important German artists Frank Auerbach, Martin Bloch, Hans Feibusch, Grete Marks, Ludwig Meidner and Hans Schleger.
