National Portrait Gallery Commission

Over an18-month period in 2013 and 2014 the National Portrait Gallery led a creative participation project entitled ‘National Memory – Local Stories’, funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and in partnership with local and national museums across the UK.

Victoria Lucas was commissioned as part of this project to create a video work in response to the Redbridge Museum’s World War I collection and the National Portrait Gallery’s archive. The resulting film Conflict will be exhibited from 11th November 2014 until the 30th May 2015, and is also digitally represented on the National Portrait Gallery’s microsite. You can view a blog post about work in progress here.
