Annual British Museum Colloquium: Statues in Contexts – Production, Meaning and (Re)Uses
July 13, 2016 - July 14, 2016Price Varies
Beyond typological and stylistic discourses on Egyptian statuary, considering their architectural, cultic and production contexts can prove both fascinating and instructive…New discoveries, the recontextualisation of earlier excavated statues and recent scientific analyses provide significant new insights into the production, meaning and (re)uses of statues. The colloquium will encompass the full typological and chronological range – from the Predynastic period to Late Antiquity – and include statuary of all scales, from royal colossi to figurines.
NOTE: There is also an additional lecture in the evening (Wednesday 13 July 2016, 18.00–19.00). The Raymond and Beverly Sackler Foundation Distinguished Lecture in Egyptology presents Dr. Christian E Loeben, Museum August Kestner, Hanover – Click for more information about this lecture.
