About the speakers
Dr Thalia Allington-Wood is an art historian specialising in early modern sculpture and is a lecturer in art history at Oxford Brookes University and University College London. She is also the daughter of the artist Edward Allington and manages his artistic estate.
She read English Literature at the University of Manchester and completed her MA and PhD in Art History at University College London, with a thesis on the monstrous statues of the Sacro Bosco of Bomarzo. She is particularly interested in the materiality and wider viewing environments of objects in relation to their making and reception, as well as canon formation, periodization and what has been termed ‘visual historiography’.
Her research has been supported to date by awards from the AHRC, the Society of Architectural Historians and the Sixteenth Century Society and fellowships at UCLA and Dumbarton Oaks of Harvard University. Thalia also works in museum education, curatorial and research, with positions previously held at London's Victoria and Albert Museum and The Design Museum.
We will be officially opening Edward Allington: Things Unsaid at 6pm on Thursday 24 October. This event is free and open to everyone, no matter your level of experience in art. Feel free to just drop in on the day or stay for a glass of wine after the gallery tour, booking isn't necessary but does help us to predict visitor numbers and plan wine & refreshments accordingly.
