Kahlil Robert Irving and Andrea Achi: Archaeology and Contemporary Art

April 3 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The artist Kahlil Robert Irving will be in conversation with Andrea Achi, Mary and Michael Jaharis Associate Curator of Byzantine Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, to discuss Irving’s exhibition, "Kahlil Robert Irving: Archaeology of the Present," that includes a range of ceramic sculptures inspired, in part, by the mosaic floors of Hellenistic Antioch. Topics will also include how contemporary artists engage the history and methodologies of archaeology, uncovering layer upon layer of evidence and artifacts that begin to tell a fragmented story.
