The Creative Photograph in Archaeology

Exhibition: September 10 - December 10, 2008
Exhibition Tour: 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 22

The Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presents The Creative Photograph in Archaeology, an exhibition that brings together for the first time new ways of seeing archaeological sites, monuments and sculpture, from the invention of photography to the present day. The work of such influential photographers such as Robertson, Konstantinou, Stillman, Boissonnas, Hege, List, Hellner and Mavrommatis show new tendencies in the representation of antiquities, and suggests a new way of seeing beyond the obvious and revealing the creative presence of the photographer. The exhibition is curated by Costis Antoniadis and is organized by Socratis Mavrommatis and the Benaki Museum in Athens, in collaboration with Fairfield University.

A tour of the exhibition will be given by Dr. Richard Mason of the Department of Ancient Studies, at 4:00 p.m. on October 22.

The presentation of this exhibition is supported by an arts program grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency funded by the State of Maryland and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support comes from the Friends of the Library & Gallery and individual contributions. Support for the public program is from UMBC’s Dresher Center for the Humanities.

The Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 12 noon to 4:30 pm, on Thursday until 8 pm, and Saturday and Sunday 1 - 5 pm. Admission is free. For more information call 410-455-2270.
