Exeter Culture: Growing a more sustainable and diverse cultural ecology

Art History in the Pub, Mon 11th Dec 7-9pm, City Gate Hotel

Invitations to Fall? AHITP%20fall%20dec17.pdf 

Join us for Exeter’s first Art History in the Pub. Melissa Percival, Professor of Art History and Visual Culture at the University of Exeter will ask a series of questions to open a conversation about the role universities play fostering connections with different communities through public art.

What activities might stimulate and connect academic research, teaching, public and regional engagement? How can ‘the academy’ meaningfully engage with artists and members of the public who have no connection to academia? What are the pressures and obstacles (physical, psychological, ideological) that prevent collaborations and how open are universities to being disrupted themselves?

Risk-taking - a combination of fear and excitement- underpins many of these questions, and as such this first pub session is an invitation to fall (fail?) gently.

Art History in the Pub is a series of informal talks, supported by the Association for Art History, taking place around the UK. The talk will last for about 30 minutes, with a break for getting extra drinks, followed by general discussion.

Art History in the Pub is free and open to all.
