Kahlil Robert Irving and Andrea Achi: Archaeology and Contemporary Art

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.

Free and open to the public. Registration is requested.

American Sign Language interpretation can be arranged for public events upon request. This service is free, but we ask for two weeks’ notice. Requests can be made by contacting kempereducation@wustl.edu.
