Is the Way We Look at Images Today Changing Art History?

With millions of images of high and low art available within seconds online, do we live in an essentially visual world, where ‘visual culture’ is replacing ‘art history’? And, if so, has it changed the way both spectators and art historians approach art? In what new directions will contemporary analyses take art history?

Book now to hear critic and writer Michael Archer (Programme Director, BA Fine Art, Goldsmiths), artist Richard Wentworth, art historian and curator Sarah Wilson (The Courtauld Institute of Art) and visionary French curator (and former Director of the Centre Georges Pompidou) Jean-Hubert Martin reflect on the present and future of art history and ask them your questions.
