Lecture Series: A Sweeping Survey of European Art History
Join art historian Linda Yang for an informative and accessible six-week lecture series that provides foundational knowledge of Western European art history, from the ancient Greco-Roman period to contemporary art. You will be empowered to engage with art more critically, regardless of prior knowledge.
Relevant works from Auckland Art Gallery’s permanent collection will be discussed throughout these lectures, creating dialogue between our locality and a wider international artistic community, past and present. Incorporating critical visual analysis throughout the lectures, Linda enables and encourages you to practice more active looking, both in and outside the lecture theatre.
Lectures are 45 minutes long followed by 15 minutes of discussion. The series runs across six weeks: you can choose to either attend on Wednesday mornings from 19 July to 23 August, or on Tuesday evenings from 10 October to 14 November.
! When selecting your ticket, only the start days of the two series is visible, however, by purchasing a ticket you will have access to the full six-week course starting that day.
This series is for Auckland Art Gallery Members only. Go to www.aucklandartgallery.com/members to find out more.
