Christie’s Education is delighted to announce the first of our Antiquity to Renaissance Evening Lecture series. This lecture programme is arranged to support the study and understanding of arts from Antiquity to the Middle Ages and Renaissance. It is organised by the Art and Collecting: Antiquity to Renaissance department.

Dr Niamh Bhalla will present “Mapping Otherworldly Spaces in the Late Medieval World.” She was Visiting Lecturer at The Courtauld Institute of Art. Her research focuses on using contemporary theory to open up fresh insights into how classical, byzantine and medieval images were experienced. Dr Bhalla has also been the project coordinator for the Getty-supported research project, Crossing Frontiers: Christians and Muslims and their art in Eastern Anatolia and the Caucasus at the Courtauld Institute.

The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception.
