Curatorial Conversations at the Warburg Institute bring the museum directors and makers of recent exhibitions at world-leading museums and galleries to discuss their work. The conversations, led by Warburg academics, discuss the issues of setting the directorial or curatorial agenda and staging meaningful encounters with objects. The series is designed to draw out discussion of the discoveries made, challenges tackled and the lessons learned in heading a collection and putting together internationally renowned exhibitions. These events are free and open to the public, and followed by a wine reception in the Warburg Common Room.


Tuesday 18 February 2020: 5.30pm: Warburg Institute Lecture Room, University of London, Woburn Square, London WC1H 0AB
Dr Victoria Avery and Dr Melissa Calaresu, Curators of FEAST AND FAST: THE ART OF FOOD IN EUROPE, 1550--1800<https://feast-and-fast.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/about/> at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge (to 26 April 2020), in conversation with Professor Bill Sherman (Director, Warburg Institute)
Feast and Fast at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, celebrates the production, preparation, and presentation of food, its consumption or rejection, its ideologies and identities. Nearly 300 objects tell the compelling and complex, local and global, story of food in Cambridge, Britain, and Europe between 1500 and 1800. Many have been unseen in the Museum's reserves for decades, and Feast & Fast provides the opportunity to research, recontextualise, and return them to the public domain, a number of which have been especially conserved for the exhibition.

Thursday 21 May 2020: 5.30pm: Warburg Institute Lecture Room, University of London, Woburn Square, London WC1H 0AB
Letizia Treves, Curator of ARTEMISIA<https://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/exhibitions/artemisia> at the National Gallery, London (4 April to 26 July 2020), in conversation with Professor Michelle O'Malley (Deputy Director, Warburg Institute)
In her lifetime, Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1654 or later) was Europe's most celebrated female painter. Over her 45-year career she gained fame and admiration in Rome, Florence, Venice, London and Naples, counting leading rulers among her patrons. Artemisia's originality lay in her ability to tackle the grand biblical, historical and mythological subjects that were usually the preserve of male artists. Her success rested on her exceptional gifts as a storyteller, her powerful imagery, her rich use of colour and the unique female perspective she brought to familiar subjects, in which heroic women often took centre stage. Forgotten for centuries, Artemisia was essentially rediscovered in the 20th century. Feminist interest in her work has led to her being championed as an inspirational figure of resilience and unbowed creativity in the face of exceptionally challenging odds. But certain elements of her biography, particularly her rape as a young woman, have sometimes obscured discussions of her artistic development and the resourceful ways she created market demand for her pictures. This exhibition, the first dedicated to the artist in the UK, brings together many of her greatest works to consider Artemisia more fully 'in the round' and to celebrate a life unique in art.
