Art History in the Pub & London History Day

May 31, 2018

For this year’s London History Day we’ll be doing another special Art History in the Pub event, this time with filmmaker and author Michael Smith. The talk and film screening will peel back the layers of the historic city, and view old and new through a contemporary lens of art and art history.

We will be screening Michael Smith’s East End video trilogy ‘Lost in London’, ‘Drift Street’ and ‘Mystery River’. Followed by Q&A with Trevor Horsewood, Association for Art History Campaigns Manager and producer of ‘Mystery River’.

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

6.30 – 8 pm, Thursday 31 May, The Star of Bethnal Green, 359 Bethnal Green Road, London, E2 6LG

Free and open to all – but you will need to pre-book a ticket via Eventbrite.
