The Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece

The Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece

The Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece is a visually stunning and thought-provoking exploration of the human condition seen through ancient Greek eyes; with a particular focus on the human form. For over 2,000 years the Greeks experimented with representing the human body in works that range from prehistoric abstract simplicity to the full-blown realism of the age of Alexander the Great.
Selected from the British Museum’s world-famous Greek and Roman collection, this major international touring exhibition will give audiences the rare opportunity to see over 100 historical works including the impressive Discobolus; an iconic marble statue of a discus thrower from the second century AD.
Where: Bendigo Art Gallery. 42 View Street, Bendigo.
