Gandharan Art at the V&A

We are delighted to support what promises to be a fascinating gallery talk and discussion on Gandharan Art, as part of the Classical Art Research Centre’s Gandhara Connections Project.

In collaboration with colleagues at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, Gandhara Connections will be hosting a public tour and discussion in the Museum, focusing on some of the highlights of the V&A’s famous collection of Gandharan art and sculpture. The tour will be led by V&A curator Nick Barnard and CARC’s director, Peter Stewart. It will consider the sculptures both in their South Asian context and in relation to Graeco-Roman connections.

The tour will take place in the Museum 10.15-11.15 am on Friday 21st June 2019.  Anyone is welcome but it is essential to book through the Classical Art Research Centre: (tel. 01865 278083).

As places for this small-group tour are very limited, priority may be given to students and those who do not normally have an opportunity to access museum collections in this way. The talk is intended to be filmed so that it can be made accessible to a wider audience through the Gandhara Connections webpages (note that the audience will not appear on film but may be audio-recorded).
