The Association for Art History’s Annual Lecture is an annual talk for members of the public. Each year, a 40-minute lecture or panel discussion is designed to address topical art historical issues, or show how the history and practice of art can help us think differently about the world around us.
Previous topics and speakers have included Griselda Pollock on ‘Post Truth’, Sara Wajid, Jon Sleigh, Rachel Minnott and Gill Hart on ‘Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the Arts’ and Deborah Sugg Ryan on the evolution of ‘domestic design’.
In 2020, we held our first virtual Annual Lecture on ‘Re-Writing Women in to Art History’.
2021’s Annual Public Lecture – Women Collectors and Collecting Today also took place online.
In December 2022, we were delighted to reconvene for an in-person event with a talk from acclaimed curator and writer, Hammad Nasar.
