This year’s theme is the response of the cultural sector to a world turned upside down and will cover four key topics: V&A costume exhibitions and the changing role of costume design; the impact of the pandemic on contemporary photographic practice; inclusion and programming contemporary responses to historic collections; and the impact of the pandemic on curation in at the National Gallery.
Each talk from the lecture series will be hosted by Dr Catherine Pütz, who has over 20 years’ experience working in senior management roles within the UK’s top museums and will feature internationally renowned curators as the guest speakers.
