This symposium will be a rare opportunity to hear a discussion by the Presidents of all four British national academies: the Royal Scottish Academy, the Royal Academy in London, the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin and the Royal Ulster Academy in Belfast, on collecting and how this is reflected within the various institutions. Joining the discussion will be David R. Brigham, President of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, to which the RSA’s second President, John Watson Gordon, was awarded Honorary Membership and which is the oldest academy in America.

This event is part of a programme celebrating the Ages of Wonder exhibition.
