Egypt in London: Modernist Sculpture Walk


External |
United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
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 outdoor spaces in London, including Rima in Hyde Park, Day and Night in Westminster and the mutilated fragments of Night and Day on Zimbabwe House (formerly the British Medical Association HQ), which were savagely criticised by archaeologist Flinders Petrie.

This walk is linked to our A Fusion of Worlds: ancient Egypt, African Art and Identity in modernist Britain exhibition.
