Pheidias’s World: The Berkeley Casts of the Parthenon Frieze and their Athenian Context

Sponsored by AIA San Francisco Society / UCB Dept. of Classics / Ancient Arts Council

AIA Society Event: San Francisco

Tuesday, September 27, 2011 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm

Location:
3335 Dwinelle Hall, UC Berkeley
Berkeley, CA 94720
United States

Lecture by Dr. Andrew Stewart (The Nicholas C. Petris Professor of Greek Studies in the Department of Classics, Ancient History and Mediterranean Archaeology and the History of Art, University of California, Berkeley)

The Parthenon frieze, represented at UC Berkeley by a selection of nine plaster casts molded from the original marble slabs in Athens and now displayed in the entrance corridor of Dwinelle Hall, is the longest surviving monument of Greek sculpture. Its choice of theme and location on the Parthenon are unique. Although a consensus has emerged that it represents the Panathenaic procession, the reasons for its presence on the Parthenon remain obscure. This lecture explores questions regarding the friezes in the context of the political, social, and religious concerns of the Periclean period, and the frieze’s unique status in the history of western art.

The casts of the Parthenon frieze will be enjoyed along with refreshments and conversation following the lecture in the Dwinelle entrance corridor.

Cosponsored by the UC Berkeley Department of Classics and the Ancient Art Council of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco
