The Department of Research and Education oversees an active program of conferences, symposia, and colloquia, often in collaboration with other scholars and institutions in the US and internationally.
This fall, the Center is hosting the following programs:
Graduate Student Symposium
Saturday, October 8, 2016, 9 am–7:30 pm
The reopening of the Yale Center for British Art, Louis Kahn’s final building, marks the completion of three phases of an ongoing conservation program. To signal this occasion, and the complete reinstallation of the collection, the Center is hosting a symposium to investigate the role that buildings play in the display of art. This one-day graduate student symposium focuses on museum architecture and seeks to inspire fresh thinking about the relationship between works of art and the buildings that contain them by addressing the ways in which architecture can enhance, limit, and transform our encounters with art. The symposium concludes with a keynote lecture by George Knight, founder of Knight Architecture and principal-in-charge of the Center’s conservation projects.
This symposium is free and open to the public, but advance registration is recommended. Online registration is available through October 6. Onsite registration will be available on the day of the symposium. For further information, please contact Research (email@example.com | +1 203 432 2824) or register online. This event will be live streamed.
