Modern Classicisms: Classical Art and Contemporary Artists in Dialogue- 10/11/2017, London (England)
What is it about Greek and Roman art that still captivates the modern imagination? How can contemporary art help us to see the classical legacy with new eyes? And what can such modern-day responses – situated against the backdrop of others over the last two millennia – reveal about our own cultural preoccupations in the twenty-first century? The art of ancient Greece and Rome is not just a thing of the past, it also exists in the present day – whether as ideal, antitype or point of departure.
Our opening Modern Classicisms workshop on 10th November sets out to explore the contemporary relevance of classical visual traditions: by bringing together art historians, collectors, critics and artists, we aim to examine what the classical artistic legacy means from the vantage-point of contemporary artistic practice.
