About Edgar Wind


image-placeholder

It is a common misconception that art is inaccessible, difficult to understand and intimidating. Established and run by students, aptly named after the first Professor of Art History at Oxford University, the Edgar Wind Society exists to make art history accessible to everyone.

We aim to encourage engagement with the History of Art, to promote involvement beyond academic study and to offer an environment within which one can nurture an interest, develop a passion or take a fresh look at art. Art history is an interdisciplinary subject, something we are keen to develop not only within the university but around Oxford.

Our weekly events provide the opportunity to get involved: from renowned speakers such as Waldemar Januszczak and Martin Kemp, weekly gallery tours and behind-the-scenes talks, film screenings and social evenings, there is no shortage of exciting and diverse events to attend.
