The Modern and Contemporary Programme at the National Gallery
For nearly two hundred years, the National Gallery’s historic collection has inspired, influenced and informed contemporary artists in remarkable ways. Practicing artists have always been central to the National Gallery’s work and the collection has been a source of inspiration to artists from all over the world, including modern masters such as Francis Bacon, Maggie Hambling, Richard Hamilton, Paula Rego, Michael Landy, Chris Ofili, Bridget Riley, Kehinde Wiley, Rosalind Nashashibi, and many others.
The National Gallery is now more committed than ever to showing Modern and Contemporary art in conversation with the historic collection. The National Gallery’s Modern and Contemporary programme extends the Gallery’s long-standing commitment to contemporary audiences and artists, providing visitors with the opportunity to explore the collection in unexpected and thought-provoking ways, contributing to a diverse, scholarly and creative programme of residencies, exhibitions and displays, and commissions which engage with important artistic developments of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Upcoming highlights of the Programme over the coming year include an exhibition by the National Gallery’s Fellowship Artist Nalini Malani in spring 2023 and a new Artist Residency with Celine Condorelli.
The programme is curated by Daniel Herrmann, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Projects and Priyesh Mistry, Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Projects.
