Established in 1994, this lecture series was named in honor of Paul Mellon (Yale College Class of 1929), the philanthropist, collector of British art, and founder of both the Yale Center for British Art (YCBA) in New Haven and the Paul Mellon Centre for British Art Studies (PMC) in London. Coorganized by the two institutions, these biennial lectures have traditionally been given by specialist in British art, first at the National Gallery, London and again at the Center.

This year’s series, entitled The Museum and Gallery Today, is exclusively online and features individual talks from some of the world’s most distinguished museum and gallery directors. The lectures are presented as free live webinars.
