About the Experience

  • Listen to a brief history of the Serpentine: how it’s organised, who its main curators and directors are, what they do and what role they play in contemporary art.  
  • Explore both the “old” Serpentine Gallery and the new Serpentine Sackler Gallery, as Edy leads you through the rooms and introduces you to the artists who are exhibiting by explaining their work.
  • Between visiting the two galleries, enjoy a refreshment at the Serpentine cafe as you discuss how the artists’ work fits within the contemporary debate, and how to detect quality and consistency within these works of art.
