Contextual Lecture Series: Tomorrow’s World – Intimations of the Future

After the 2017 bicentenary series that looked back on the Gallery's origins, in this new series accomplished authorities will speculate on how the wider future might look a generation from now across politics, social change, engineering, banking, law and popular culture.
