Art History Festival 20-25 September 2021

Join us for the first annual Art History Festival – a celebration of the diverse narratives that enrich our enjoyment of art, visual culture and the world around us.

Our week-long festival kicks off online with a series of engaging, interactive and free digital events from Monday 20 to Thursday 23 September. We are also delighted to partner with the National Gallery for our in-person Friday Lates events on 24 September as well as a busy daytime programme on Saturday 25 September. Both our digital and National Gallery events will include lively presentations and conversations exploring a wide range of subjects, perspectives, historical periods and geographies. In a variety of ways they will address how works of art, design and architecture give us insight into ourselves, others and cultures past and present.

Whether you book tickets for a few key events, join us at Friday Lates, or experience the whole festival, the choice is up to you! Let’s celebrate and explore art history in a new way.

We are excited to announce the programme for the Art History Festival 2021. Select an event to find out more and book your free tickets. Places are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
