The Research Forum 

The Research Forum offers an extensive programme of fellowships, lectures, conferences, workshops and seminars supporting advanced inquiry in the history of art, conservation and museum studies.

Established in 2003 with the aid of a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, from 2015/16 our programmes are funded with continuing support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

All events are held at The Courtauld Institute of Art, North Wing, Somerset House, Strand, London, WC2R 0RN, either in our Research Forum Seminar Room or the Kenneth Clark Lecture Theatre.

With the exception of some of our day-long conferences, all of The Research Forum’s lectures and seminars are free and all are welcome.
