Meet the Host, Antonia Cevizli

Antonia Gatward Cevizli has a PhD in Art History from the University of Warwick. Her research and publications focus on Renaissance Italy and cultural exchange with the Islamic World. However, her interests are broad and she has taught a wide chronology of Art History at Sotheby’s Institute of Art; Sabancı University, Istanbul and across the collections of both Tate Modern and Tate Britain. She lectures for a number of institutions including the V&A Academy and The Courtauld summer school. She enjoys introducing people to different periods of art and helping them to gain a greater enjoyment of Art History. 

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!

More Information

What if I can’t make the event?

If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.

Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

How do I watch the live event?

Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.

How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)

Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
