The Sainsbury Institute for Art (SIfA) is a venture based at the Sainsbury Centre, which formally launched in autumn 2011. It brings together the activities of the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, the School of World Art Studies and Museology, the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures and the Sainsbury Research Unit for the Arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas. Together these organisations are unique in the range of perspectives they offer and are at the forefront of research, innovation in teaching and public engagement.
The Institute will develop an integrated approach to art as a global phenomenon through a combination of disciplinary approaches, exhibitions and programming.
The Institute regularly programmes events to discuss issues and ideas.
