Insights Into Art History

Art & Identity | Race, Gender, Power

Free Young People's Workshop

Free online workshop with The Courtauld Young People’s Programme
Suitable for ages 16-18

Why is art history relevant today and how can images from the past help us understand the present? In this Summer University taster session, we will discuss what art historians do and what and how you might study in a history of art degree.

In a seminar session with art historian Tilly Scantlebury and online lecture from Professor Jo Applin, you will learn how to look at figurative and abstract paintings to uncover hidden histories of race, gender and power by artists such as Frank Bowling, Howardena Pindell and Barkley Hendricks.
