NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY CLOSURE/TOURING PROGRAMME
The National Portrait Gallery will close in June 2020 for a redevelopment programme. During the planned three year closure, it will tour 300 portraits each year across the country, from Cornwall to Edinburgh. The tour is planned to include works that are rarely loaned, alongside a programme of events supported by Art Fund and the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
The extensive programme includes a partnership with York Art Gallery in 2021, an exhibition of Tudor portraits curated in partnership with the Holburne Museum in Bath in 2022 and projects with National Museums Liverpool, Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, which will then tour to other venues. There will also be a new schools outreach programme ‘Faces and Places’ across seven London Boroughs accompanied by art shown in local schools, libraries and arts centres, plus further school art projects from Wolverhampton to Teesside.
A press statement highlights that the NPG is also actively looking for “expressions of interest from organisations interested in partnering with them during this time.”
