Mining the Ancient

Exhibition Website

Artists throughout the ages have looked to the past to unearth inspiration. Mining the Ancient presents the work of five contemporary artists who take their cue from the language of the ancient and find inspiration for their sculptural practices in fragments of the past. Juxtaposed with key historical works from the Cantor’s ancient art collection, this group exhibition explores the ways in which some of the most recent art practice of today creates fantastic dialogues with some of the oldest art objects in our civilization’s history.
