Visiting Speakers and Artists

Talks and presentations from some of the most interesting and original artists, critics, curators, historians and art professionals working today.

A unique and rich programme of Visiting Artists and Speakers

Fine Art, which is a part of Newcastle University's School of Arts and Cultures, is delighted to present a public weekly programme of talks, research lectures and seminars from some of the most interesting and original artists, critics, curators, historians and art professionals working today. This programme is complemented by school-based research activities such as 'Connecting Principle', the Fine Art Postgraduate Research Student seminars, and the ongoing series of gallery talks and lectures organised by the Hatton Gallery, which is housed in the Fine Art Building.

Speakers are invited whose work relates to topical research and teaching themes being explored by staff, undergraduate students, postgraduate students and researchers in Fine Art. The talks and events are a significant element of Fine Art’s unique commitment to research that tests established boundaries and methodologies. The Lecture programme is intended to transcend traditional discussion boundaries.

Current and previous years' programmes can be found on the Fine Art Visiting Speakers website.
