National Portrait Gallery This Thursday
Noise of Art founder and Re:Play/ Slipped Disco resident, DJ Ben Osborne, returns to the National Portrait Gallery for a weekend warm up. He’ll be playing music against a back drop of portraits inspired by the Queen: Art & Image exhibition; from Cecil Beaton to Pietro Annigoni, Andy Warhol, Annie Leibovitz, Lucian Freud, Thomas Struth and Gerhard Richter. There’ll be some swerve balls, so expect to hear anything from royalty referencing gospel to queens of soul, kings of disco, first ladies of funk and at least one mash up of a Queen song.
Guest DJ: Ben Osborne
