ART HISTORY NEWS
Why art history matters
This is why art history matters to us and why, as a charity, subject association and membership body, we do the work that we do. Our work is united by a determination to show why art history matters, and how it can matter for many not just a few.
Our advocacy work is a key part of what we do towards promoting the professional practice and public understanding of art history and visual culture. At present it covers a range of areas including education, policy and partnerships.
Our internationally renowned Annual Conference showcases current research and critical debate about art history and visual culture.
Our annual grant giving programme is designed to encourage and promote good art history practice through awards and give financial assistance for research projects to those who cannot easily afford it.
Our publications, including the leading academic journal, Art History and Thinking About Art text book, are for people teaching, studying or exploring art history at different levels in different contexts.
