About Artist: Unknown

From the ancient to the contemporary – whether in a museum, book or auction house – the way we engage with art has revolved around the cult of the individual. But what happens when we don’t know who made something?

Artist: Unknown takes this question as its focus, bringing together for the first time an extraordinary selection of anonymous art and artefacts from the University of Cambridge’s renowned museums and collections.

About Dr Carol Atack

Dr Carol Atack returned to studying Classics after a career in technical journalism and writing, and earlier studies in Politics. Since completing her studies at Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge, she has taught at St Hugh’s College, Oxford and the University of Warwick, and then returned to Oxford as a post-doctoral researcher on the Anachronism and Antiquity project. Atack’s research interests lie at the intersection of Politics and Classics, in the field of Greek political thought and philosophy within its historical and cultural context. She is also interested in ancient sexuality and gender. Atack is a founder member, and treasurer of, the Women’s Classical Committee UK, and an associate editor for Polis: the journal of ancient Greek political thought.


The Ede Room is fully accessible. It is located on the second floor of Kettle’s Yard and can be reached by stairs or lift. There are accessible toilets located on the ground and first floors.
