Tonight we launch our celebrity event series celebrating the exhibition America: painting a nation. Hear from the exhibition’s curatorial consultant Chris McAuliffe as he and Margaret Throsby question what exactly is 'American’ about American painting. The wonderful Wes Carr returns to perform his folk tunes as Buffalo Tales. And be sure not to miss our expert talks inside the America exhibition at the new time of 7.15pm throughout November and December.
