Modernism in Barcelona: Movers and Shakers

July 21, 2018 @ 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Speaker: Dr Jeni Ryde

Academy Travel is proud to sponsor the Hazelhurst Regional Gallery and Arts Centre’s Artz Talk 2018 program.

In this talk, Dr Jeni Ryde explores the origins and development of modernism in Barcelona. While Antoni Gaudí enjoys the lion’s share of attention for his extravagant architecture in this genre, the talk will also showcase less known but equally fabulous ‘movers’ and ‘shakers’ who have contributed to an extraordinary period of urban development in Barcelona, which has shaped how we see much of the city today.

Dr Jeni Ryde is a linguist and art history specialist with over fifteen years experience leading tours to Italy, Spain and Portugal. She is passionate about art, design and architecture both ancient and modern and particularly enjoys how both complement each other. Jeni holds two undergraduate degrees with majors in Anthropology and French and Interpreting and Translation with NAATI qualifications, two Masters degrees in Italian Linguistics and TESOL and a cross disciplinary PhD in Renaissance Art History, Tourism and Museum Management.

The cost for this lecture is:

  • Friends of Hazelhurst $5
  • Non-members $10
