Camden Arts Centre: 1960s and the Public Institutionby Camden Arts Centre

Project Description

In 2015 Camden Arts Centre celebrates its 50th anniversary and, to mark the occasion, we have partnered to present a lecture looking back on the important role public institutions such as Camden Arts Centre have played in making art accessible for everyone. 
The talk will be a discussion between Sir Nicholas Serota, Director at TATE, and artist Jeremy Deller. They consider how the establishment of public institutions such as Camden Arts Centre, Arnolfini and Modern Art Oxford, that were built in the 1960’s, brought art to the people, the opportunities that the formation of these spaces enabled, and the challenges they now face to remain open and accessible in the changing landscape of today’s art world.

Camden Arts Centre is a place for world-class contemporary art exhibitions and education. With artists at the core of the programme, Camden Arts Centre strives to involve members of the public in the ideas and processes of today's artists, and the artists who inspire them. In addition to gallery spaces, the building comprises of studios which schools can use free of charge and in which people of all ages and abilities can learn skills in ceramics, painting, drawing and writing as part of the courses programme.

The exhibition and education programmes are developed with equal significance and are continually intertwined. The year-round programme includes exhibitions, artist residencies, talks and events, school and artists’ projects, courses and off-site activities, ensuring Camden Arts Centre remains a dynamic place for seeing, making and talking about art.
