What connects us to the cities that we live and work in?

TEDxCourtauldInstitute are taking over to explore the many ways in which artists have connected to cities, as part of this year’s theme ‘Connections.’

Explore the ties that bind artists to the city through six hundred years of art in The Courtauld Gallery Collection. Uncover the ways in which artists have documented the ever-changing nature of the city in a tour of The Courtauld’s Conway Photographic Library, which contains over 1 million images dating from the inception of photography to the present day.  You will then create your own personal responses!
