Become a member

Membership provides many opportunities to share knowledge, inspire views, network, and advance research.

Our membership reflects and encourages an inclusive and broad approach to art history. Membership is open to anyone teaching, studying or working with art history and visual culture. For most people, becoming a member is as much about supporting a common purpose as it is about receiving benefits. We believe both are important.

WHY MEMBERS MATTER TO US

Members and supporters make our mission possible. Our role, as a subject association and charity, is to champion the value of art history. We do this by promoting the professional practice and public understanding of art history through our events, advocacy, publications, grants and membership.

WHY MEMBERSHIP MATTERS TO YOU

We are for a broad and inclusive art history and visual culture. We bring people together to share knowledge, inspire views and advance research. Membership is open to anyone with an active interest in or professional commitment to art history. Art history is at the heart of what we do as an organisation, and it matters to us as much as it matters to you.
