Museum Talks at the Leiden Department of Art History

In the Fall of 2021, the Leiden Department of Art History organizes several Online Museum Talks with researchers and curators, in collaboration with LUCAS, Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society.

Much-discussed exhibitions and current museum related questions. ‘If you want to know what is happening in the art and museum sector in a very up-to-date way, then the 'Museum Talks' lecture series is the thing for you’, says Professor of Art History and organiser Stijn Bussels. See below for the - partly online and partly on location- programme of this Fall: from Rembrandt’s Orient to The Museum as Performative Space, and from smell in seventeenth-century art to parelmoersnijders.

This year's speakers

Cynthia Kok (Yale University), Margaret Mansfield (University of California, Santa Barbara), Lizzie Marx (Mauritshuis), Gary Schwartz (Art historian) and Tanja Elstgeest (Director Museum De Lakenhal)
