On the heels of the Courtauld Gallery’s first exhibition to focus on non-Western art, Court and Craft: A Masterpiece from Northern Iraq, alumni are invited to learn about the state of art in the Middle East today from one of the art world’s foremost experts.

 

The Honourable Anna Somers Cocks FSA OBE (MA 1973), Founder and General Editorial Director of The Art Newspaper, is intimately familiar with the world’s leading artists, dealers and institutions, as well as the political currents which underpin international arts culture.  From 1999 to 2012 she was Chairman of the Venice in Peril Fund, and is now a Trustee of the Gilbert Collection at the V&A, a member of the Advisory Board of the Sotheby’s Institute, a Judge for the 2014 Art Fund Prize for Museum of the Year, and a Governor of the Courtauld itself.  Drawing on her extensive travels and insider knowledge, Anna will reveal insights into the dynamic and diverse roles that art is playing in this complex and fascinating region.  The talk will be followed by a drinks reception.

 

This is a joint event with the Friends of the Courtauld.
