Location: Main Level, South Gallery The classical era marked an innovative period in human history whose effects have reverberated throughout the world for millennia. The people living in the Mediterranean region from around the 8th century BCE to the 5th century CE achieved new understandings in science, math, and medicine; formed representative government; and produced literature and art that still have global relevance today. The works in this exhibition explore how the echoes of classical antiquity have continued to be felt in visual cultures of the last few centuries. Some works draw inspiration from Greco-Roman mythology, some insert contemporary bodies into ancient scenarios and archetypes, and others visualize the past colliding with the present in surprising ways. In collaboration with WU’s Museum and Curatorial Studies minor, students from Dr. Tony Silvestri’s class on the history of ancient Greece assisted in curating this exhibition. They will produce research and original readings of these objects, and we encourage you to return in the coming weeks to view their written contributions.
