About this Blog

Views and Reviews is an opportunity for diverse voices from the Courtauld Institute to respond to Research Forum events and art exhibitions around London, to allow for the public to engage with its community. It is divided into two strands, Research Rhythms and Courtauld Critics.


Research Rhythms highlights the Research Forum’s extensive programme of events, helps draw in new audiences, and creates connections between the Courtauld and the enormous range of people and activities throughout and beyond the Institute. Each term a team of bloggers create content based on their impressions and perceptions of the events they attend. Contributors are drawn from the Courtauld’s undergraduate, postgraduate and research students as well as staff.
