Faculty Panel | Body Matters: Between the Ancient and the Contemporary


Faculty Panel | Body Matters: Between the Ancient and the Contemporary

Friday, April 8, 2022 @ 2:00 pm


Louis A. Simpson International Building, Room A71

The relationship between the ancient past and the present is a common thread in the scholarship of Egyptologist Deborah Vischak, classicist Brooke Holmes, and sculptor Martha Friedman. This interdisciplinary panel brings these Princeton faculty members together for a conversation about their research, the evolving nature of their respective fields, and the ethics of creating, displaying, and studying representations of the body. This conversation—moderated by Mitra Abbaspour, Haskell Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art—anticipates the exhibition Body Matters / Martha Friedman, opening on May 20 at Art@Bainbridge
