The retirement celebrations in honour of Jean Michel Massing, Professor of History of Art and Fellow of King’s College (since 1982), will be held on 1-2 July 2016.
On Friday 1 July an international symposium will bring together a large number of Jean Michel’s former students in academia, museums and the art world. It will be followed by a drinks reception in King’s College Chapel and dinner in Hall. After these festivities, which are open to all, a reunion of former King’s Art History students will be held on Saturday 2 July, commencing after breakfast and with lunch in Hall.
Needless to say, Jean Michel would be delighted to see you.
