  • Helen Marshall, BBC Diamond Jubilee celebration, installation view at the Towner Gallery Courtesy of the BBC
To celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, BBC South East asked viewers and listeners to help create a unique artwork to commemorate the event. More than 5,000 BBC South East viewers and listeners submitted family portraits, photos of their ancestors, snaps of important occasions in their lives and of times that made them laugh. The photos have then been put together to create 2 images of the queen at the beginning of her 60 year reign to now.

The portrait is on display in the Clore Learning Studio at Turner Contemporary 16 and 17 June. The exhibition is free. 

Turner Contemporary welcomed Her Majesty the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh on 11 November 2011 and the gallery is delighted to continue its royal connection and to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.
