Camden Arts Centre 50th Anniversary Lecture Series at Conway Hall. How has globalisation changed the art world, and do UK arts organisations present enough art from around the world?


Alessio Antoniolli, Director of Gasworks and Triangle Network, David A. Bailey, curator, and Courtney J. Martin, Assistant Professor of History of Art and Architecture at Brown University, discuss how public institutions represent a globalised art world as a way of provoking redefined narratives of contemporary culture.

This talk will look at how we can challenge the Western canon of contemporary art, ensuring that UK institutions have dialogues around diversity and the representation of artists from across the world alongside British minority artists, whilst also thinking about how we mediate these differences.
