Dr Victoria Avery and Dr Melissa Calaresu, Curators of Feast and Fast: The Art of Food in Europe, 1550–1800, at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge (to 26 April 2020) in conversation with Professor Bill Sherman (Warburg Institute).

Curatorial Conversations bring the museum directors and makers of recent exhibitions at world-leading museums and galleries to the Warburg to discuss their work. The conversations, led by academics at the Warburg Institute, discuss the issues of setting the directorial or curatorial agenda and staging meaningful encounters with objects. The series is designed to draw out discussion of the discoveries made, challenges tackled and the lessons learned in heading a collection and putting together internationally renowned exhibitions.
