Tom Lovelace Bathers Performance

The National Gallery, London
21 January 2022

Performances begin at 3pm, 4pm and 5pm
Free admission (booking required)

Tom Lovelace, with collaborators Typhaine Delaup, Clémentine Bedos and Francesco Migliaccio stage a site-specific performance at the National Gallery.

Staged amongst the 19th-century collection of paintings and in dialogue with Georges Seurat's Bathers at Asnières, these performances are both responses to Seurat's seminal work and its interconnected themes of looking, touch and isolation.

You are invited to come and go with each performance and encouraged to help record its happening by taking and sharing photos with the artist on social media, as a way of disseminating the event beyond the gallery walls.

This event is the latest iteration of Lovelace’s Living Pictures series, where photography, painting and performance collide, presenting moments that disrupt the traditions of viewing and display.

You can also hear the artist speak about the work in his Unexpected views talk, taking place after the performances and on 18 February 2022, 6.30 - 7.15pm.
