  • The Sackler Research Forum - The Courtauld Institute of Art

Why does art history matter? How can art be a form of politics outside politics? Why does food matter to art history? What is distance? What is the digital future of art history?

Find out the answer to all of these questions, and more, at Res|fest 2017!

Launching The Courtauld Institute of Art’s Public Research Forum, Res|fest is an evening of pop-up talks, performances and exhibits that celebrates research in art history, curation and conservation.

Experience The Courtauld Institute of Art and Courtauld Gallery after hours with a mix of art, talks, demonstrations and tours. Bring your friends, have a bite to eat, grab a drink and enjoy the atmosphere.
