Twelve art historians, one proposition
There’s no such thing as British art
The latest event organised by the British Art Research School at the University of York. This symposium is designed to open up and explore the historical category of British art, to reconsider the uses (and usefulness) of the term for art historians today. The theme is purposefully open, unbound by conventional period and genre distinctions, and the format is simple: twelve art historians will each offer a brief, informal response to the proposition that there’s no such thing as British art.
Tim Barringer (Yale), Grace Brockington (Bristol), Adrian George (Government Art Collection), Cora Gilroy-Ware (Tate Britain), Martin Hammer (Kent), John Munns (Cambridge), David Peters Corbett (UEA), Liz Prettejohn (York), Amy Tobin (York), Sarah Turner (Paul Mellon Centre), Sarah Monks (UEA), Jane Hawkes (York).
