On April 3, 2024, artist Kahlil Robert Irving was joined in conversation by Andrea Achi, Mary and Michael Jaharis Associate Curator of Byzantine Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, to discuss Irving’s exhibition Archaeology of the Present, which includes a range of ceramic sculptures inspired, in part, by the mosaic floors of Hellenistic Antioch. Topics included how contemporary artists engage the history and methodologies of archaeology, uncovering layer upon layer of evidence and artifacts that begin to tell a fragmented story.

This event was supported in part by the Department of Art History & Archaeology in Arts & Sciences. Part of the Sam Fox School Public Lecture Series.
