Take a closer look at selected artworks from Te Papa's art exhibition European Splendour 1500-1800 with the curators, then join them for an informal discussion and drinks.

Explore the stories behind some of the fascinating pieces on display in European Splendour 1500-1800. Curators Justine Olsen and Mark Stocker talk in the gallery about works including:

- The Orphrey crucifix (link is external), a magnificent medieval embroidered cross
- A Wedgwood anti-slavery medallion (link is external)
- An exquisitely framed copy of Raphael’s Madonna della sedia (link is external)
- Intricate 18th-century lace (link is external).

You then have free time to contemplate the works.

Back at Espresso cafe, we break into groups and discuss the works book-club style. Mark and Justine provide conversation starters as we indulge in a glass of wine and finger food.

All welcome - no knowledge of art or the exhibition needed. Bookings essential.
