    Opening Lecture and Reception: In Harmony: The Norma Jean Calderwood Collection of Islamic Art

    Celebrate the opening of the exhibition In Harmony: The Norma Jean Calderwood Collection of Islamic Art with a reception and open galleries in the Sackler Museum, following a lecture by Oya Pancaro?lu, Associate Professor of History, Bo?aziçi University, Istanbul, Turkey, who will present Tables and Other Social Settings in 9th–11th Century Eastern Iran at 6pm.

    By taking a broad view of ceramic production in eastern Iran between the 9th and 11th centuries, this lecture will explore the depth and breadth of cultural resonances evident in the choice of ?gural and epigraphic decoration found on table wares. Ceramic wares from this period in eastern Iran re?ect a rich cultural heritage that is often ignored in the art-historical quest to identify distinct typologies and o?er attributions. Though the study of the ceramics is also hindered by the dearth of secure archaeological data, the array of decoration found on pottery vessels is indicative of a vibrant table culture with a long history predating the Islamic conquest of Iran.

    Free admission.
