Wednesday 20th May, 2020 – 8:30 for 8:45am
The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square (entry via the National Café entrance)
Bringing together works of art that span centuries – from Bruegel and Velázquez to Andy Warhol and Tracey Emin – this exhibition explores the concept of sin in art, looking at complex theological ideas and depictions of ‘sinful’ everyday behaviour that blur the boundaries between religious and secular art.
Our guide will be the curator of Sin, Dr Joost Joustra. Joost is the Howard and Roberta Ahmanson Fellow in Art and Religion at the National Gallery, London, and a visiting lecturer in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at King’s College, London.
Before the guided viewing, which will take place before the Gallery is open to the public, the Sion College group will be given breakfast in the Trafalgar Room within the Gallery. The viewing itself will be from 09:30 to 10am, after which attendees can leave at their leisure.

Sion College events are often over-subscribed and each place is generously subsidised. If you are offered a place but are unable to attend for any reason, please let the office know so that your place may be offered to another. In the event of failure to attend without notice after being reserved a place, the Court will require a refund of the subsidy. Application for a place at any Sion event constitutes acceptance of this proviso.
