Course details

Lectures between October 3rd and January 23rd will be delivered via the Zoom online platform and will be live streamed lectures hosted by the Gallery Lecturers. Until the current Covid 19 situation changes considerably or improves rapidly, classes will be delivered in this way. We will return to the Lecture Hall in the Gallery as soon as the government guidelines allow for this to happen.
A meeting ID and Password will be sent to all students enrolled, to allow access to this interactive live lecture each Saturday morning by the People's College. These live illustrated talks will include opportunities for live Q&A with the lecturer.
This series of slide illustrated art history lectures and tours will look at the diverse range of influences, subject matter and artistic movements explored by some of the most innovative artists from the 19th to the 21st centuries. Throughout the course, temporary exhibitions will also be examined alongside works from the permanent collection. These illustrated lectures will offer the opportunity for exploring engaging and wide-ranging themes from art history to contemporary visual art practice, to wider societal concerns such as the notion of borders explored by artists nationally and internationally.

So just to confirm this is a completely online course delivered remotely and not in the Gallery unless the current situation rapidly improves or the guidelines change.
