Travelling in style: The trains, planes and steamships of the stars
Roberts G08 Lecture Theatre |
Malet Place | London | WC1E 7JE | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
Join Rachel Kapelke-Dale and Dr Rebecca Harrison to examine the public and private spaces of celebrities in the 1930s and 1940s. ‘Travelling in Style’ will take the audience on a journey through train stations and other transport spaces used by celebrities in the UK and USA. The growth of ‘celebrity-spotting’ in this period transformed these transport spaces into an extension of the cinemas that had been popularised in train carriages and on steamships during this period, turning travel into a more glamorous and meaningful art. We will be reflecting on how the representation of travel in cinema has influenced public perceptions of film stars/screen personalities from the 1930s through to the present day.
A drinks reception follows in the Roberts Foyer G02.
This event is part of the UCL Festival of the Arts.
