VIRTUAL - Creativity in Aegean Bronze Age Art

November 8, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST

This is an online event.

AIA Society: Ottawa

In interpreting creativity in Aegean Bronze Age art, Carl Knappett identifies distinct actions–such as modelling, combining and imprinting–whereby meaning is scaffolded through the materials themselves. By showing how these actions work in the context of specific bodies of material, Knappett brings life to the fascinating art of Minoan Crete and surrounding areas in novel ways. With a special focus on how creativity manifests itself in these processes, he makes an argument for not just how creativity emerges through specific material engagements but also why creativity might be especially valued at particular moments.
