Membership Options

As an organisation we work hard to shape the future for art history. Our membership plays an important part in that work and our Members and supporters make what we do possible, helping us champion the value of art history, bringing people together to share knowledge, inspire new thinking and advance research.

Our membership is open to both individuals and organisations, wherever you are in the world. Annual membership runs for 12 months from your joining date, and our extended memberships run for three years from the day you join.

We are in the process of moving to a new membership system, but joining is still super simple. Follow the steps below and your membership will be active within 24 hours, even sooner if you are an existing member renewing your membership.

If you work for a university, museum, gallery, heritage site, auction house, historic house, foundation or publishers and you are interested in finding out more about the kind of memberships we offer for organisations, we have a dedicated page to help you.
