Exhibition: Radicals and Non-Conformists

Poster design by Shia-ying Wallis

Founding member, Co-Director and this year’s curator of the Staff Art Show at the National Portrait Gallery, Beverley Bennett, commissioned fellow creatives to follow the brief ‘Radicals’ in conjuction with the 12-Pages Online Project Space.
Exhibitors were asked to take inspiration from sitters within the collection located in Room 18, Art Invention and Thought: The Romantics, which features the likes of William Godwin, Lord Byron, John Constable and William Blake.
As the project evolved, participants began to move away from the chosen theme by selecting new or existing work. In doing so, individuals emerged to become Non-Conformists, free-thinking Radicals. For more information visit
