Art and Ideas: Professor Stephen Foster
The Art and Ideas series explores issues and themes in contemporary curating.
The Art & Ideas series explores issues and themes in contemporary curating. Each season, we invite a distinguished guest speaker to share their ideas about art, curating and exhibition making. Looking at the relationship between the University and the art gallery, Professor Stephen Foster will discuss these aspects within his role as Director of John Hansard Gallery at the University of Southampton. Under Professor Foster’s leadership, the John Hansard Gallery has won a substantial reputation for seminal work with artists and curators. The gallery was designated ‘world leading’ for its curatorial research in the last Universities’ Research Assessment Exercise and has also pioneered groundbreaking access and audience development work. Professor Foster has been Chair of VAGA (Visual Arts and Galleries Association) on three occasions and is currently Treasurer of IKT (International Association of Curators’ of Contemporary Art).
