Art History in the Pub
Art History in the Pub reflects the AAH's commitment to bringing interesting, cutting-edge art-historical research to a wider, public community. Talks are free, and open to all, no booking required. We are currently developing a new programme of one-off sessions as well as a new series that is due to take place in London in 2017.

Art History in in the Pub talks are always very informal. The talks are of general interest, and anyone is welcome to come along and listen and ask questions. Talks usually last for about 30 minutes, with a break for getting extra drinks, followed by general discussion.
AHITP is always free of charge and open to everyone.
Next AHITP talks:
- AHITP, Bristol, Monday 26 September, 7pm
Luke Mitchell, photographer, artist and curator, 'Contemporary philosophers, court painters and making artworks: Is modern art’s job not only to show us who we are, but also help us?'
- AHITP, Bristol, Monday 31 October, 7pm
Sophie Hatchwell (University of Bristol) will talk about 'Bodies in the Blitz: the war art of Robert Colquhoun and Robert MacBryde'.
The 'two Roberts' first came to prominence in the early 40s. Painters, partners and budding bohemians, they are usually discussed in the context of Neo-Romanticism or celtic art. I look instead at how the work they produced in the Second World war reflects their experience of home-front Britain. In particular, I look at how they depict the human body and hint at the trauma, violence and horror of total war.
- AHITP, Bristol, Monday 28 November, 7pm
Jenny Gaschke, Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, 'Drunk as a …Monkey? Telling images of drinking in the collection of Bristol Museum and Art Gallery'
