Event description

Description

Due to popular demand, the Paul Mellon Centre is adding an additional Public Lecture Course that will now run in the spring term. ‘Thinking about Exhibitions: Interpretation, Reconstruction and Curation’ as part of its Public Lecture Course programme will be led by the Centre’s Director of Studies, Mark Hallett.

The course will feature an exciting peek behind the curtains involved in the research, writing, borrowing, design and installation processes that underpin the 'Exhibition'. Thinking about Exhibitions’ will feature artists, curators, and art historians as guest speakers over its five sessions and will include an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the planning and instllation of Hogarth, which took place at Tate Britain in 2007, and two displays that will open next year: The Great Spectacle: 250 Years of the Summer Exhibition, at the Royal Academy, and George Shaw: A Corner of a Foreign Field, which will open at the Yale Center for British Art in the autumn, before travelling to the Holburne Museum in Bath in the spring of 2019.

This term’s course will take on a slightly different format from previous years. The first four sessions will follow the traditional Public Lecture Course model, with a lecture followed by a question and answer period. The final session will be a group discussion that will bring together all of the themes discussed in the preceding lectures. The lectures will be recorded and made available to the public through the Paul Mellon Centre’s website.

In order to ensure that everyone interested has an opportunity to attend, participants will need to register for each lecture individually.
