Gandharan Art in the Victoria and Albert Museum: 21st June 2019
A Gallery Talk and Discussion in the V&A
In collaboration with colleagues at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum we will be hosting a public tour and discussion in the Museum, focusing on some of the highlights of the V&A’s famous collection of Gandharan sculpture. The tour will be led by V&A curator Nick Barnard and CARC’s director, Peter Stewart. We shall be considering the sculptures both in their South Asian context and in relation to Graeco-Roman connections.
The tour will take place in the Museum 10.15-11.15 am on Friday 21st June 2019. Places for this small-group tour are very limited and currently all are fully booked. We are compiling a reserve list and if you would like to be added to this list, please contact the Classical Art Research Centre: firstname.lastname@example.org (tel. 01865 278083). We may also give priority to students and those who do not normally have an opportunity to access museum collections in this way.
We plan to film the talk so that it can be made accessible to a wider audience through the Gandhara Connections webpages (note that the audience will not appear on film but may be audio-recorded).
