Ruth Allen is currently a Visiting Academic at the Institute of Classical Studies, London.


ATLANTA, GA.- The Michael C. Carlos Museum of Emory University announces the appointment of Dr. Ruth Allen as curator of Greek and Roman art. Allen brings to the Carlos strong curatorial experience, exceptional academic credentials, and a background in education.

Allen received her BA in Classics from the University of Cambridge, her MA in Art History from the Courtauld Institute, and her PhD from the University of Cambridge. She is currently a Visiting Academic at the Institute of Classical Studies, London.

Allen has held curatorial positions in the Antiquities Department at the J. Paul Getty Museum, where she contributed to the development of three international loan exhibitions, and at the British Museum, researching and cataloguing their collection of Roman glass gems. She has previously worked as an undergraduate supervisor for the Faculty of Classics at the University of Cambridge and a Department Administrator for the Department of Antiquities at Christie’s, London.

Allen co-curated The Classical Now at King’s College London, Recasting: Classical Casts and Contemporary Art at the Cambridge Museum of Classical Archaeology, and Classicicity: Ancient Art and Contemporary Objects at Breese Little, London.

“Ruth Allen comes highly recommended as a smart, engaging, passionate scholar and colleague,” said director Bonnie Speed. “We are looking forward to welcoming her to the Carlos from the United Kingdom.” Allen will take up her post in September.
