On Friday 9 February 2024 at 6:30pm Sharon Walters will take part in a conversation with Emily Stone at National Gallery, as part of the Unexpected Views series.
Unexpected Views are monthly conversations between National Gallery curators and some of the most important cultural practitioners of today. Discussions focus on a selected masterpiece from the National Gallery Collection, exploring its relevance to the artist’s work, or more broadly to current social and cultural issues. By allowing for new discussions of the Old Masters, the series aims for critical, counter-intuitive and joyful approaches to the National Gallery collection, which reflect the breadth of contemporary artistic practice.
From the gallery’s vast collection Sharon has selected Francisco de Zurbarán’s St Margaret of Antioch to discuss in relation to her own practice.
