British Sporting Art

6 February 2015 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

For decades, the genre of British sporting art has existed on the periphery of modern art historical discourse. To coincide with the development of a National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art, due to open in Newmarket in spring 2016, the British Art Network is hosting a seminar dedicated to the examination of what seems to have become a marginalised genre of British art. We hope that a day of short presentations and extensive round­table discussion will provoke new interest in the genre and highlight the rich research potential that this area of British art can offer. Programmed by Cicely Robinson, Assistant Curator (British Sporting Art), National Horseracing Museum, in collaboration with Tabitha Barber, Curator, British Art, Tate.
