Egypt in London: Modernist sculpture walk


Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology | DMS Watson Building (link Map)
Malet Place | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: £5 (including booking fee)
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

We will start at the Carreras ‘Black Cat’ building with a discussion of the popular image of Egypt in the 1920s. Then we will take the tube and/or walk to Jacob Epstein’s public sculpture in out door spaces in London, including Rima in Hyde Park, Day and Night in Westminster and the mutilated fragments on Zimbabwe House (formerly the British Medical Association HQ), which were savagely criticised by archaeologist Flinders Petrie.

Linked to A Fusion of Worlds exhibition.
