Join us on Friday September 4th for an evening of special events inspired by the Soundscapes exhibition at The National Gallery. Enjoy a pop-up bar with live music from DJ Kit Grill in partnership with NTS Radio; improve your drawing skills at one of the gallery's Talk and Draw sessions; and immerse yourself in a sensory experience with Gastrophonic and AVM Curiosities.
Taking Garofalo's 'An Allegory of Love' as our inspiration, Gastrophonic and AVM Curiosities have collaborated to create a multi-sensory interpretation of this 16th century masterpiece: using colour, aroma and a sonic backdrop to tell 3 stories, of 1 painting, using 5 senses. There will be two sessions over the course of the evening, running at 7pm & 8pm, entry is free but there are limited places, allocated on a first come, first served basis.
The Soundscapes Late is also your last chance to catch an after-hours opening of the exhibition, with the Gallery staying open until 9pm. Soundscapes is an immersive and site specific exhibition, inviting visitors to ‘hear’ the painting and ‘see’ the sound. The exhibition features musicians and sound artists including Nico Muhly, Jamie xx, Susan Philipsz, Chris Watson, Gabriel Yared, and Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, who have each created unique compositions inspired by paintings from the National Gallery’s collection.
