Speaker: Amanda Game, freelance curator in the field of contemporary applied art. From 1986 to 2007 she was Director, Crafts at the Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh. Her book Contemporary British Craft: the Goodison Gift to the Fitzwilliam Museum was published in 2016. She will discuss amazing objects, such as a medieval jug; an Antwerp altarpiece; a Ghanaian gold weight; and a Picasso drawing: how do temporary exhibitions, permanent collection displays, curatorial scholarship and artist perception work together to foster enjoyment and animate the qualities of these very different objects?
