"Match of the Day?: John Berger, David Sylvester and the Football and the Fine Arts Exhibition of 1953"

Mike O'Mahony, Ph.D.

Professor of Art and Visual Culture

University of Bristol

Dr. Mahony's recent research and publications have focused on the visual culture of sport and the Olympic Games. This has extended his original research interests in representations of sport and physical culture in official and unofficial Soviet art to the wider international arena. Dr. Mahony also continues to research the visual and material culture of Russia and the Soviet Union, where he has particular interests in the design programmes of the Moscow metro; the work of Aleksandr Deineka; the films of Sergei Eisenstein; and the fate of Soviet public monuments in the post-Soviet era. He has recently completed a two-year Leverhulme Research Fellowship studying the relationships between sport and its representation in visual culture with particular emphasis on the Olympic Games. Dr. Mahony has authored several books including, Olympic Visions: Images of the Games through History (2012) and Sport in the USSR: Physical Culture--Visual Culture (2006).

Lecture sponsored by the J. Hecht British Studies Endowment.
