Event description
Student-led tours of the 'Visible Skin: Rediscovering the Renaissance through Black Portraiture' exhibition on the Strand campus

About this event

Following the launch of the outdoor exhibition 'Visible Skin: Rediscovering the Renaissance through Black Portraiture' featuring the work of Peter Brathwaite, we are offering a series of exhibition tours. The tours, for King's students and led by King's students, will offer a unique curatorial perspective on the exhibition, through the eyes of trained King's students.

Sign up to join our final free tour. The tour will begin outside the entrance to The Arcade and will last roughly an hour. It will be followed by a chance to chat about the exhibition with the group over a free tea/coffee/cold drink in The Arcade, home to the 'exhibition hub' where all 11 images can be viewed together.

The open promenade exhibition, running from 10 September – 10 December, can be viewed in windows across King’s Strand Campus.

You can find out more about the exhibition here, view the online gallery here, and follow @RenSkinKCL and @CulturalKings on Twitter to keep up to date.

Organiser Renaissance Skin

Organiser of Visible Skin Exhibition: Student led tours

Renaissance Skin is a 5-year research project funded by a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award. Based at King’s College London, the project is led by Professor Evelyn Welch. Over the 5 years, we will study the wide range of ways in which skin, both animal and human, was conceptualised and used in Europe between 1450 and 1700, a period of enormous change in terms of global contacts and connections, and scientific innovation.
