Same Old Same New Aliki Braine Tuesday 26 February 2019

You might think it's easy to spot the difference between contemporary and historical art, but how about what they have in common?  Can old masters help us understand works such as 'the pile of bricks' and 'the unmade bed'?  This lecture explores whether the old masters can help us understand modern works, and whether artists' intentions and strategies have really changed across the centuries.

Aliki studied at The Ruskin School of Fine Art, Oxford, The Slade School of Fine Art, London and the Courtauld Institute, where she was awarded a distinction for her masters in 17th century painting.  A regular freelance lecturer for the National Gallery, Serpentine Gallery, Tate Galleries, Courtauld Gallery and Wallace Collection.  An Associate Lecturer for the University of the Arts London, and she teaches courses on the Slade School of Fine Arts Summer programme.  Aliki also regularly exhibits her photographic work internationally.
