Fragments: Sculpture of the Ancient World
This exhibition will explore fragments of ancient sculpture and the way in which they can be more striking and enigmatic than a complete piece. For instance, the eye can be drawn to intricate or unusual details in fragments that you may overlook in a complete piece. The dialogue between the viewer and a fragment can be dynamic and lively, each party contributing equally.
