Summer Lecture Series | Ben Thomas & Tom Henry in conversation: Raphael at The National Gallery
Join us for our online Summer Lecture Series; Artists, curators and writers look in-depth at ideas and approaches to art and the creative endeavour through talks and conversations. Curated by Dr Claudia Tobin, lectures are held Wednesday evenings live on Zoom.

Curators and Art Historians Ben Thomas and Tom Henry will discuss the current Raphael exhibition at the National Gallery, reflecting on the artist’s importance and how the exhibition fits into a series of initiatives that have tried to bring us closer to an understanding of his work. They will explore the process of curating the show – not least the challenges posed by the pandemic.
