RES|FEST is a vibrant and dynamic event showcasing innovative perspectives on the visual arts, curating and art history. Entertainment ranges from fast-paced lightning talks given by distinguished speakers addressing stimulating questions, to moving spoken-word pieces created in response to works of art located in the museum - including a piece by the modernist artist, Amedeo Modigliani, that is currently on loan from The Courtauld Gallery.
This will be the first time that The Courtauld have taken RES|FEST outside of their home at Somerset House in London. The event will be taking place on Thursday 25th October at the Ulster Museum in Belfast from 18:00 - 22:00.
