LFA Panel Discussion

18 June 2018

Cromwell Place is a new and ground-breaking solution for galleries and art professionals housed within five Grade II listed buildings in South Kensington. We have invited speakers from the Royal Academy and Michael Werner Gallery to discuss how the architecture of a space influences the way in which visitors experience art.
Speakers will be asked to debate whether the ‘blank cube’ provides the best space to display art; in what way does the architecture of an art space dialogue with the art displayed; how much does working within listed buildings influence the curatorial process, and can the historical factor add an additional layer to the way in which visitors experience art?


Confirmed Speakers:
Paul White – BuckleyGrayYeoman
Marlene Von Carnap, Director at Michael Werner Gallery
Charles Saumarez-Smith, Art Historian and Chief Executive of the Royal Academy of Arts


26th of June at 6.30 to 8.30pm
