Philosophy in Museums and Galleries
What we do and where we do it
We do philosophy. We do it inside Galleries and Museums. We do it with curious freethinkers from all over the world.
Within a city as culturally diverse as London, it may come as a surprise to find out that we are the only organisation that is dedicated to bringing analytic philosophy into Galleries and Museums. Find out more about our ongoing events at the National Gallery, The Tate, The Photographers Gallery by following us on twitter @PhilosophyArts or our Philosophy and Visual Arts website which includes films, interviews, reviews and behind the scenes extras from our events.
