50th Anniversary Lecture Series: Talk 1: 1960s and the Public Institution

50th Anniversary Lecture Series: Talk 1: 1960s and the Public Institution

22 September 2015

Tuesday 22 September, 7.30 - 9.00pm 
Camden Town Hall Council Chamber, Judd Street, WC1H 9JE


In 2015 Camden Arts Centre celebrates its 50th anniversary and, to mark the occasion, we are presenting five lectures looking back on the important role public institutions such as Camden Arts Centre have played in making art accessible for everyone. This series begins with a discussion between Sir Nicholas Serota, Director at TATE, and artist Jeremy Deller. They consider how the establishment of public institutions such as Camden Arts Centre, Arnolfini and Modern Art Oxford, that were built in the 1960’s, brought art to the people, the opportunities that the formation of these spaces enabled, and the challenges they now face to remain open and accessible in the changing landscape of today’s art world. Jenni Lomax, Director of Camden Arts Centre, will chair the discussion.
