Mosaics and the Antioch Recovery Project

March 3, 2022 @ 6:00 pm MST Arizona Time

TBA (Central Arizona)
Phoenix, AZ United States


Lecturer: Jennifer M. Stager

This lecture analyzes the medium of mosaic as paradigmatic for a range of art practices. First it will trace the reception history of ancient mosaics, which have historically been marginalized as functional craft. Then it will turn to ongoing research connected with the mosaic floors from Antioch-on-the-Orontes, which were excavated in the 1930s and have subsequently been distributed to over twenty-five different locations worldwide. Finally, the lecture will consider the specific history of the thirty or so mosaics currently in the collection of the Baltimore Museum of Art and the rooms, houses, and other mosaic fragments housed in other collections to which they are connected.
