In 2020, the Paul Mellon Centre commemorates its 50th anniversary. As part of its programme for this special year, the Centre is hosting a lecture series that is designed to offer a stimulating range of perspectives on the state of British art and architectural history, and on the subject’s evolution over the past fifty years. To kick off the series, five distinguished speakers from different areas of British art history reflect on their own experiences of the field and discuss its wider development during recent decades.
