Ancient Egyptian Art: The Magic of Representation

An Art History Lecture by Eric Wells

Thursday, November 13, 6-7:15 p.m.

The ancient Egyptians produced some of the most recognizable works of art and architecture in the ancient world. A lecture by UCLA teaching associate Eric Wells will explore the magical and social beliefs that framed and influenced the creation of ancient Egyptian material culture, focusing specifically on pieces from the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art’s ancient Egyptian collection. “Ancient Egyptian Art: The Magic of Representation” will take place at RAFFMA on Thursday, Nov. 13 at 6p.m. Speaker Eric Wells, a UCLA teaching associate in Near East Languages and Cultures and Ph.D candidate, is currently working on a catalog of the RAFFMA permanent collection of ancient Egyptian art. Focusing on ancient Egyptian art from the Old Kingdom, Middle Kingdom and New Kingdom, this catalog will be released in the spring of 2015, in conjunction with a new exhibition. 

Admission to the lecture is free.
