ENCOUNTERING BEAUTY THROUGH THE MATERIAL WORLD
Our 2021 programme invites you to uncover and explore the history of art through the world of materials.
Join our guest speakers for podcasts, videos, panel discussions and more, as they focus on a different material each month and unravel its varied interpretations across time, cultures and disciplines.
Curated in response to the limitations of the past year, the programme provides a welcome reminder of the inherent joy that comes from direct connection with works of art.
