Date and time: Monday 29 January, 7-8.30pm

Talk: ‘Enjoy Yourself – Arnolfini’s Social History’

Speakers: Phil Owen, Archivist, Arnolfini

This month’s Art History in the Pub in Bristol is speaker is Phil Owen, archivist at the Arnolfini gallery, Bristol. Arnolfini was set up by 3 young artists in 1961. Since that time, it has granted many millions of people free access to some of the most innovative (and often challenging) contemporary visual art, performance, music and film, transforming the culture of its home city in the process. In his talk, Phil will discuss the events and exhibitions that mark key milestones in the history of the organisation, and introduce a new project which will ensure this unique heritage is preserved for the future.

Art History in the Pub is a series of informal talks that take place around the UK. They reflect our shared commitment to bringing interesting (and often local) art history and visual culture to a wider public community. Talks 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.
