Ken Currie in conversation with the National Galleries of Scotland

In spring 2021, the National Galleries of Scotland unveiled Unknown Man (2019), a large-scale new painting by the artist Ken Currie.

On long-term loan from the artist, the poignant painting depicts the preeminent forensic anthropologist Professor Dame Sue Black alongside a clothed cadaver. It has received its very first public showing in their The Modern Portrait exhibition at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.

Marking Professor Black's major societal contributions made throughout a highly-distinguished career, its creation arose from Currie and Professor Black meeting on on a BBC Radio discussion panel several years ago.

In this interview, Ken Currie speaks about his art and practice, the painting itself, and what lies ahead.
