Rumble Fund Lecture in Classical Art 2018:
Prof. Mary Beard
Mistaken Identities: Roman Emperors in Modern Art

Time: 18.30-20.00

The 2018 Rumble Lecture, delivered by Mary Beard, will explore some of the ways modern artists have re-imagined ancient Roman emperors: it will uncover some ‘missing persons’, and reveal some unexpected misidentifications. The lecture marks the fifth anniversary of the Jamie Rumble Memorial Fund here at King’s, and forms part of the cultural programme accompanying our major exhibition in Bush House and the Inigo Rooms (The Classical Now: see www.modernclassicisms.com).

The 2018 Rumble Lecture comes about thanks to the generosity of the Jamie Rumble Memorial Fund. It is organised by the Centre of Hellenic Studies, in collaboration with the Institute of Classical Studies and the Department of Classics at King’s College London. The lecture will be followed by a reception (in the Bush House Arcade) to which all are warmly invited.
