The Future of Studying Old Art

Venue Birkbeck 43 Gordon Square, B04
Booking details
Free entry; booking required

Event description

This workshop explores the continued relevance of studying the art of the Middle Ages and Renaissance in a cultural climate where the humanities have been downgraded, and art history labelled elitist. With contributions from teachers, scholars, curators and broadcasters, we aim to think broadly about how we study, teach and communicate ideas about 'old' art, in order to challenge established discourses in the discipline, engage with a wider audience, and make connections between past and present.

Tickets are free, but must be secured via our Eventbrite page.
