12/48 Portraits

23 May 2018

Free entry, drop-in

A series of 12 Thursday’s from 4-5pm during the exhibition. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for profiles of each speaker week by week as they are unveiled.

12/48 Portraits is a series of talks by female academics which will relate to Gerhard Richter’s work, 48 Portraits, taking place on Thursday afternoons in the Barker-Mill Gallery.

Richter’s work depicts 48 portraits of influential figures of the time. Deliberately seeking a palpable sense of uniformity in the portraits, Richter only chose father figures as his subjects for this piece. To counter the 48 men depicted, 12 female academics and influential figures in Southampton have been invited to interpret Richter’s work and discuss the hidden histories of women.
