The Big Draw Festival 2022: Family Saturday. Amy Sherald

  • Sat 29 October 2022
  • 10 am – 12.30 pm

In celebration of ‘Amy Sherald. The World We Make’ and The Big Draw Festival, Hauser & Wirth London invites families into the gallery for a family tour of the exhibition followed by drawing activities.

Our Family Saturday takes its inspiration from Amy Sherald, who is one of the defining contemporary portraitists in the United States. Sherald is acclaimed for her paintings of Black Americans at leisure that have become landmarks in the grand tradition of social portraiture—a tradition that for too long excluded the Black men, women, families and artists whose lives have been inextricable from public and politicised narratives.

This event is free, however please book a ticket per person in advance for one of the following sessions:

10 – 11 am 10.45 – 11.45 am 11.30 am – 12.30 pm

Family Saturdays are aimed at families with children aged 6 – 12 years. Younger children are welcome if supervised by parents or carers.

‘Amy Sherald. The World We Make’ is on view 12 October through 23 December 2022.
