The Paul Mellon Centre | Eve Tam, Former Director of Hong Kong Museum of Art

February 11, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Established in 1994, this lecture series was named in honour of Paul Mellon (Yale College, class of 1929), the philanthropist, collector of British art, and founder of both the Yale Center for British Art (YCBA) in New Haven and the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art (PMC). Co-organised by the two institutions, these biennial lectures have traditionally been given by a specialist in British art, first at the National Gallery, London, and again at the YCBA in New Haven.

This year’s series, entitled The Museum and Gallery Today, is exclusively online and features individual talks from some of the world’s most distinguished museum and gallery directors. The lectures are presented as free live webinars. Registration is required.

She has worked with different museums and cultural institutions in her museum career and over the years, she has worked on several new museum projects, including the opening of the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, the establishment of the Oi! art space, and she took charge of the major renovation and extension of the Hong Kong Museum of Art as the Museum’s Director between 2012 to 2019.
