EVENT: Symposium: The Architecture of James Gibbs. London, 29 September 2018

The Georgian Group is pleased to announce its forthcoming symposium on the work of James Gibbs. This one-day symposium, on Saturday 29 September 2018 at the Society of Antiquaries, will reassess, and throw new light upon, Gibbs’s achievements and their significance for the understanding of Georgian architecture. The symposium will be held from 10 am to 5.15 pm, and will be led by Dr Geoffrey Tyack, editor of the Georgian Group Journal. Speakers will include leading authorities on eighteenth-century British architecture and decorative art – among them Andrew Martindale, Peter Guillery, Richard Hewlings, Charles Hind, Hugh Petter and Alec Cobbe – and younger scholars. An evening reception will follow.
