Drop in for a free 15-minute talk to unearth the hidden stories of the Royal Academy.

Learn about the work of contemporary sculptor and Royal Academician, Phyllida Barlow, who has taken over our Gabrielle Jungels-Winkler galleries with her monumental installations. Barlow’s current exhibition, cul-de-sac, features two works on the staircase that lead up to the exhibition. These works are the entry point to our discussion on Barlow’s artistic practice and the development of the exhibition not to mention her intriguing use of colour, texture and industrial materials.

In this series of taster talks, encounter the stories behind the RA’s remarkable Collection and buildings from the RA staff’s insider perspective.

Meet in the Front Hall of Burlington Gardens.

Taster talks are free and last 15 minutes. Ask a member of the team on site for further information.
