Exhibition on Screen: My National Gallery, London + Intro


Exhibition on Screen: My National Gallery, London + Intro

Thursday 27th June 2024 - Saturday 29th June 2024

Dir. Ali Ray, Phil Grabsky, UK, 2024, 90 mins.

The Thursday 27th's screening will be introduced by Rhys Morgan.

The National Gallery of London is one of the world’s greatest art galleries. It is full of masterpieces, an endless resource of history, an endless source of stories. Beloved celebrities, devoted staff members and world class experts come together to paint a unique portrait of this iconic British institution for its 200th birthday.

The power of great art lies in its ability to communicate with anyone, no matter their art historical knowledge, their background, their beliefs.

This film gives voice to those who work at the gallery who identify the one artwork that means the most to them and why. An assortment of people from all walks of life make surprising choices of both well-known and lesser-known artworks. Finally, some well-known celebrities explain what they head for when they visit the gallery; Claudia Winkleman, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, Jacqueline Wilson and HRH Princess Eugenie, all let us in to their deeply personal connection with the National Gallery.

These stories are used as a lens through which to explore the 200-year history of the National Gallery and what the future may hold for this spectacular space.

The Box, Plymouth, is one of four partners across the UK working with the National Gallery to deliver 'The Triumph of Art' by artist Jeremy Deller, a major new commission which will round off the gallery’s Bicentenary celebrations.

Plymouth-based artist and curator, Rhys Morgan, is currently working as the Art Fund Assistant Curator at the National Gallery to oversee the development and delivery of a near year-long public programme of collective and interactive activities and local performance events beginning in June 2024.
