IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to changes in our funding circumstances Art & Culture's educational activities have been placed on hold (22.07.16)


ART & CULTURE is an itinerant non-profit educational organisation which offers a biannual £1,000 art criticism prize and biannual lectures. Art & Culture takes its name from Clement Greenberg's seminal essay collection with the same name, published in 1961. It encompasses what was previously Breese Little's public education programme.


FOUNDED BY Josephine Breese and Henry Little, Breese Little gallery.
