We're currently showing 30 rarely-displayed Goya prints from our collections in an exhibition called Fantasies, Follies and Disasters.
The etchings by Francisco de Goya caught the imagination of a dynamic group of young people called the Creative Consultants. These young people regularly attend sessions at the gallery to explore their interest in art and are currently working with us on our annual Visual Dialogues partnership with Tate.
As part of this project, they have selected to display Jake and Dinos Chapman's sculpture Disasters of War (1993) alongside the etchings by Goya of the same name. The Chapman Brothers' sculpture (on loan from Tate) is made of expertly crafted model figures in miniature, committing atrocious acts of violence.
The Creative Consultants worked with artist Katy McCall to create dynamic interventions and interpretation to link the historic Goya works with the contemporary Chapman piece.
They had some amazing ideas which were pitched in a Dragon's Den style session to gallery staff. The final outcomes include:

Visual Dialogues: Young people and artists interpreting art together is supported by Tate, DCMS and the Department for Children, Schools and Families.
