Art History Series:
Forms & Perception from Antiquity to Roche

Virtual event, hosted via Zoom
Wednesday 28th October, 6-7pm
£10 per person

Join the Trust’s expert Art Historian, Timothy Revell, for the first in a series of Art History lectures, considering our contemporary artworks from an art historical perspective.

Migration is not something only undertaken by people. Forms, ideas and even styles migrate through time and place, in a process art historian Aby Warburg called Bildwanderung. This talk will show contemporary works from the 60-acre Roche Court Sculpture Park and their ‘migration’ within the context of art history.

The talk will also focus on the perception of these forms within their either built or ‘natural’ environments and how this (or whether this) alters the fundamental meaning for the beholder.

Discussion will include artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Barbara Hepworth and everything from pinecones to goddesses. Moreover, there will be a focus on seeing ‘the bigger picture’.

Timothy Revell is an art historian who completed his MSt at the University of Oxford as the John Bamborough Msc Scholar in the Humanities, Linacre College in the History of Art and Visual Culture, writing on Peter Paul Rubens. Tim also studied at the Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario where he was the Medal Winner in Art History. In 2015-16, Tim was a Baden-Württemberg Scholar at the Universität Heidelberg in Germany, where he worked on the international project Women Cross Media that was exhibited at the State Collections of Dresden in 2017.
