Discover the impact Ancient Greece had on Liverpool and its history

Join Dr Chrissy Partheni, Curator of Classical Antiquities, National Museums Liverpool, and Lauren Barnes, Assistant Curator at Tate Liverpool, for a talk exploring the classical collections of National Museums Liverpool that are displayed alongside contemporary artworks in Liverpool Biennial 2016: Ancient Greece. They will uncover the histories of Ancient Greek pottery, as well as the Roman sculptures collected by Henry Blundell and installed in his re-creation of the Pantheon in eighteenth-century Lancashire. Reflecting on the changing role of these objects across the centuries, the talk will also explore their relationships to the contemporary works in the exhibition.
