The Sackler Research Forum 2015 Frank Davis Memorial Lecture Series got underway this week. The 2015 series of lectures brings together anthropologists and art historians for a ‘conversation’ about art and about the ways in which their respective disciplines have addressed its theory, practice and history.
This annual series was established in 1989, as a result of a bequest from the F.M. Kirby Foundation, in honour of Frank Davis, who was a critic for Country Life magazine. The bequest has allowed The Courtauld to invite internationally renowned scholars to come to the Institute to speak about their work.
