Bernard Vere specializes in art from the late-19th to mid-20th century. His work explores the connection between technological advances and the rise of the metropolis in modernist art, particularly in its implications for the individual subject. Recent research has concentrated on the relationship of sport to art and architecture in the first half of the 20th century. Vere has been published in journals and art magazines, including Art History, Visual Culture in Britain, The International Journal of the History of Sport, and Contemporary. He sits on the Executive Steering Committee of the British Association of Modernist Studies and is an elected member of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA). Vere has been an invited speaker at Tate Modern, Tate Britain, and the University of Oxford, as well as presenting research at numerous conferences and galleries. He has taught at Birkbeck College (University of London), London Metropolitan University, and Tate.
