Lifting the Bell Jar: Heritage & Contemporary Art - where next?


Thursday 29 June 2017 5.30pm-7pm
Tickets are £10

In 1987 cultural historian Robert Hewison wrote that 'Heritage...has enclosed the late twentieth century in a bell jar into which no ideas can enter, and, just as crucially, from which none can escape'. 30 years on, has anything changed?

Keynote panel debate: Frances Guy (curator), Robert Hewison (cultural historian) & Kate Harvey (Senior Producer, Artichoke) chaired by Dame Liz Forgan.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Yinka Shonibare MBE has had to withdraw from the panel debate. He and we apologise for any disappointment caused.

The event will take place at:

8 Dray Walk
The Old Truman Brewery
London E1 6QL
