The Ferens Fine Art Lecture Series, is an established highlight in the University programme. Every year the series explores a different theme around art. This year we have chosen, ‘Realism in Art’ and thhe series will examine how different perspectives of reality in an artistic and creative context can be used to explore themes of responsibility, ethics and identity and how it can help us understand abstract, distant concepts.
