An Art Fund Artist in Conversation
- National Portrait Gallery |
Turner Prize winning artist Steve McQueen will talk to Adrian Searle, chief art critic of the Guardian, about Queen and Country, the work he created in his capacity as Official War Artist for Iraq.
The conversation will consider the role of the war artist in the setting of a modern conflict and explore Queen and Country in the wider context of McQueen’s work.
The talk at the gallery coincides with the display of the work at the gallery between 20 March and 18 July 2010.
The Art Fund has been touring the work as part of McQueen’s campaign to see the fallen commemorated on British Postage Stamps.
