Our first spring offering of the Public Lecture Course began last week with Director of Studies Mark Hallett taking attendees on a look back at three Eighteenth Century exhibitions. It was the first lecture in a series of five which will look behind-the-scenes at exhibitions, examining the research, writing, borrowing, design and installation processes.

All of the lectures will live streamed as they are happening and you can watch for free through our Livestream account. The lectures will also then be available to watch at any time from our Recordings page.

This week Mark Hallett will be joined by Christine Riding, Head of Arts & Curator of Queen's House, as they look back on their 2006/2007 Hogarth exhibition which was shown at Tate Britain and Musee du Louvre in Paris. The following weeks will include a look forward to the upcoming exhibition The Great Spectacle at the Royal Academy and an insight into artist George Shaw's upcoming exhibition George Shaw: A Corner of a Foreign Field at the Yale Center for British Art and Holburne Museum.
