Kit off for Spencer Tunick

Last year the Jerwood hosted a special evening with the Chapman Brothers, through the Museums at Night programme. The Jerwood was in competition with two other UK museums and people were invited to participate in an online vote to decide which museum ‘won’ the night with the Chapmans.
