Beyond Herzog: Current Thinking About Ice Age Cave Art

Sponsored by AIA San Francisco Society

AIA Society Event: San Francisco

Friday, May 4, 2012 - 8:00pm - 9:30pm

Location:
370 Dwinelle Hall, U C Berkeley
Berkeley, CA 94720
United States

 

In this talk, Prof. Conkey will discuss the current ways of thinking about and studying the Ice Age "arts" of
Paleolithic Europe. While Herzog's movie, "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" brought a 3-D exposure
to a wider public about the now-famous Grotte Chauvet (Ardèche, France) there is much more to
think about than the "enchantment" of the images and the "virtuosities" of the creators. Recent
work in understanding the technologies of the image-making, the chrono-spatial patternings of
image-making (including a newly discovered site in central Europe) and assessments of the
interpretive field will be discussed.
 
Note: The Spring Reception will take place before this lecture. More
information will be available in late March or early April.

The Lost Sunshade of Queen Nefertiti: Royal women in the reign of King Akhenaten

Sponsored by AIA San Francisco Society

AIA Society Event: San Francisco

Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 2:00pm - 3:30pm

Location:
370 Dwinelle Hall, U C Berkeley
Berkeley, CA 94720
United States

This slide presentation will be given by Dr. Jacquelyn Williamson, American Council of Learned Societies Post-Doctoral Faculty Fellow and Visiting Lecturer, Dept. of Near Eastern Studies, U C Berkeley.  It will be held in 370 Dwinelle Hall on the UC Berkeley campus, and is free and open to the public.

Abstract:
This lecture will begin with a short introduction to the Amarna Period. The first half of the talk will focus on the speaker’s current excavation and discovery of the “lost” sun temple of Nefertiti at Tell el-Amarna. An overview of the art, texts, and architecture of the site will be used to explain and nuance the role Nefertiti played in the new Aten religion.

When he began a religion based on one, gender-neutral god, Akhenaten removed the essential female element of fertility and regeneration imparted by the traditional Egyptian female goddesses. In their place, he used his wife and their children as a means to guarantee and celebrate the regeneration of the Egyptian cosmos.

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
