How does a Victorian gallery founded in an Age of Empire move with the times? Nicholas Cullinan, Director of the National Portrait Gallery and Chair of the judging panel for the BP Portrait Award 2017 argues, ‘At a time when identity, shared culture and civic values are increasingly relevant to us all, the National Portrait Gallery is uniquely placed to generate a discussion by reflecting on our common artistic, cultural and social history – in short, what binds us together.’

The doors and bar open at 5.30pm and there will be an opportunity to view the exhibition before the lecture, which will be introduced at 6.30pm by Camilla Hampshire, Museums Manager and Cultural Lead and one of the judges for the BP Portrait Award 2017 exhibition.

The BP Portrait Award is organised by the National Portrait Gallery, London, and supported by BP.
