The event begins approximately 9:00am and ends around 7:00pm.

This workshop 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 ancient Greek and Roman artistic legacy means from the vantage-point of contemporary artistic practice.

The event launches a larger research project at King's College London, in collaboration with the Courtauld Institute of Art, the Musée d’Art Classique de Mougins and Minerva (The International Review of Ancient Art and Archaeology). Our workshop will take the form of a dialogue in the true sense of the word. The day will be structured around a range of thematic sessions – each opened with a short intervention, followed by a panel response and group discussion. Speakers and respondents include not only academic classicists and art historians, but also curators, critics, journalists and, above all, artists themselves (including some of the most celebrated names in contemporary British art).

Confirmed participants include: Dalya Alberge, Ruth Allen, Tiphaine Besnard, Bruce Boucher, James Cahill, Léo Caillard, Michael Craig-Martin, Matthew Darbyshire, Charlotte Higgins, Brooke Holmes, Nick Hornby, Jessica Hughes, Patrick Kelley, Polina Kosmadaki, Christopher Le Brun, Christian Levett, Isabel Lewis, Simon Martin, Robin Osborne, Christodoulos Panayiotou, Elizabeth Prettejohn, Marc Quinn, Mary Reid Kelley, Alexandre Singh, Michael Squire, Caroline Vout and Sarah Wilson.
