Amy Meyers and Brian Allen
Topic: IN CONVERSATION: Art, London and Yale
16 November 2011
About the talk:
We were very lucky to have two leading lights on the Yale Art scene. Amy Meyers, Director of the Yale Center for British Art, joined Brian Allen, Director of Studies at the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, to talk about the inter-relationships between their two institutions: the legacy of the past, their visions for the future and the exciting current and upcoming exhibitions and programmes with which they have been associated. Well-known for their enthusiastic and engaging style.

She has underpinned the research and education programmes of the institution, expanded facilities and improved access for students, scholars and the public, and strengthened the conservation programme, all while overseeing an unending series of first-class international exhibitions.
