We are happy to take press and media enquires about the Annual Conference, and make available a limited number of 1 day press passes. For details please contact

In exchange for a press pass we would usually ask for a small write-up (either for a personal blog or our own INSIGHT blog) and/or social media post.

The Association for Art History’s Annual Conference takes place throughout the UK. It is an academic conference dedicated to presenting international, high-quality research about art, art history and visual cultures. The Annual Conference has been running for 47 years, during which it has continued to support a broad and inclusive art history. The Annual Conference takes place over three days and usually attracts around 500 delegates. The Annual Conference is open to all – members of the Association receive discounted tickets but you not do need to be a member to propose a paper, present or attend the event. A Bookfair and fringe programme form part of the Annual Conference.
