The event will have a BSL interpreter.

This free talk will be presented by Beth Hughes, curator of The Arts Council Collection, and take place at 1pm on Wednesday, 17 March 2021 online via Zoom.

About this talk: The Arts Council Collection is the most widely circulated national loan collection of modern and contemporary British Art. For the past 75 years we have been acquiring new work and sharing it with audiences across the UK and internationally. Curator, Beth Hughes, will introduce this diverse collection, talk about how we support artists and acquire new work and our plans for the future
