Opening Reception for Striking Power: Iconoclasm in Ancient Egypt

03/22/19, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM


Admission: Free. Admission to the Pulitzer is free, and visitors can park for free in the lot adjacent to the museum.

Celebrate the opening of Striking Power: Iconoclasm in Ancient Egypt, the first exhibition to explore the history of iconoclasm in relation to ancient Egyptian art. With nearly forty masterpieces on loan from the renowned collection of the Brooklyn Museum, Striking Power will examine widespread campaigns of targeted destruction driven by political and religious motivations. Focusing on the legacies of pharaohs Hatshepsut (reigned ca. 1478–1458 BCE) and Akhenaten (reigned ca. 1353–1336 BCE), as well as the destruction of objects in late Antiquity, the exhibition will pair damaged works, from fragmented heads to altered inscriptions, with undamaged examples.
