Lecture on Six Cycladic Objects at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Nov. 18

NEW YORK – The Annual Cycladic Lecture— Six Cycladic Objects: Movement, Representation and Identity in the Third Millennium BCE, will be presented by Michael J. Boyd in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Bonnie J. Sacerdote Lecture Hall in the Ruth and Harold D. Uris Center for Education on Friday, November 18, 4-5 PM.

Michael J. Boyd is the Senior Research Affiliate, Science and Technology in Archaeology and Culture Research Center, The Cyprus Institute, and Research Affiliate, McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge.

An archaeologist and scholar, Boyd will explore how the Cyclades, an island group in the Aegean Sea, formed the arena in which a fundamental transformation in human society took place in the mid-third millennium BCE— the effects of which can still be traced today.

Through six Cycladic objects, attendees will discover how the recent excavations on the island of Keros have transformed our understanding of the period and gain insight into the fundamental role of Keros and the wider Cyclades at one of the most important turning points in human history: the inception of the world’s first information age.

The lecture is free, though advance registration is required. Please note: For free programs, the Met generally over-registers to ensure a full house. Priority will be given to those who have registered in advance, though advance registration does not guarantee admission once the venue reaches capacity.

Use the Ruth and Harold D. Uris Center for Education entrance at Fifth Avenue and 81st Street.

This lecture has been made possible by the Museum of Cycladic and Ancient Greek Art, Athens, Greece in fondest memory of its founder Dolly Goulandris.

Masks are recommended, but not required.
