LSE Public Lecture - Christ to Coke? How image becomes icon.

Speaker(s): Professor Martin Kemp Chair: Nick Byrne Recorded on 3 November 2011 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House. Informative, funny, sad, and surprising by turns, this is the first book to look at all the main types of visual icon, taking eleven mega-famous examples, from Christ to the Coke bottle, to see how they arose and how they continue to function. Image, branding, and logos are obsessions of our age. Iconic images dominate the media. This event marks the publication of Kemp's new book Christ to Coke: How Image Becomes Icon. Martin Kemp FBA is Emeritus Professor in the History of Art at Trinity College, Oxford University. He has written, broadcast and curated exhibitions on imagery in art and science from the Renaissance to the present day. Nick Byrne is Director of the LSE Language Centre and a member of the LSE's Arts Advisory Group. http://www2.lse.ac.uk/newsAndMedia/videoAndAudio/channels/publicLecturesAndEvents/player.aspx?id=1231
