Beyond the Grave: Death in ancient times
The Teece Museum, with the generous support of the UC Foundation, is pleased to present our new exhibition 'Beyond the Grave: Death in ancient times', which opens Saturday 5th May 2018 and runs through to 24 February 2019.
Despite the distance of time, it is possible to catch a glimpse of what death meant for the ancient Greeks and Romans through the artefacts they left behind. ‘Beyond the Grave’ includes poignant inscriptions on tombstones, dramatic scenes in plays, carefully sculpted memorials, and detailed images of funeral rites painted on vases. All these point to the fact that in ancient times, as now, how we approach the subject of death can reveal a great deal about what each of our cultures values most about life.
When: Open to the public Wednesdays through to Sundays, 11am-3pm
Where: Level 1, UC Arts Location, The Arts Centre of Christchurch, 3 Hereford Street, Christchurch.
The Teece Museum is also available by appointment Mondays and Tuesdays, 9am-3pm, for school and group visits.Contact website: www.arts.canterbury.ac.nz/logie/
