Ruth in Rio

CMCI Senior Lecturer Dr Ruth Adams is back from Rio de Janeiro, where she gave a keynote address at ProPesq PP, the seventh annual conference of the Brazilian national association of advertising and marketing researchers, hosted by PUC-Rio (Pontifical Catholic University).

The theme of the conference was ‘Advertising everyone uses: advertising challenges of everyday life: pervasiveness, representation and identity’.  Ruth’s presentation was called ‘The Saatchi Generation: Art & Advertising in the UK’, and considered the (arguably disproportionate) influence of advertising mogul turned art collector Charles Saatchi, and his impact on art production and the creative economy in Britain.

Today, Ruth is bringing a little bit of Brazil to King’s with the one-day symposium: ‘Rio/London: A Tale of Two (Post-Colonial) Cities’, which features two guest speakers from PUC-Rio amongst the participants, as well as a performance from the London School of Capoeira.  Tickets and more details available from here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/riolondon-a-tale-of-two-postcolonial-cities-tickets-25118561293
