Thomas Marks: A Poet in the Museum
Join us on September 14 for the opening lecture of the 2017-2018 Friends Lecture Series, featuring Thomas Marks, PhD. This lecture is sponsored by the Mark and Mary Goff Fiterman Lecture Fund and is presented by the Friends and Mia.
Since 2013, Marks has been at the editor of Apollo. Any art aficionado will be aware of this art magazine, founded in 1925. Apollo is recognized for its access to eminent art collectors, critical essays, and above all unprecedented reporting of prominent artists of our time.
Mark’s education speaks highly of his ability to lead this historic publication. He holds degrees from Pembroke College, University of Cambridge, with a master of studies in Romantic and Victorian literature; and a doctorate in Victorian poetry and architecture from Magdalen College, Oxford. His writings regarding art and literature have been published in The Times Literary Supplement, New Statesman, and The Telegraph. Marks currently teaches 19th- and 20th-century culture and literature at the University of Oxford.
While at Apollo, Marks has propelled its website into an influential forum for daily art comments, reviews, and news. He has also established Apollo 40 Under 40, a publication acknowledging up and coming talented young artists.
