Athletica: The Ancient Greek concept of beauty


Free with same-day ticket to the Ancient Greeks exhibition

Join WAAPA Cultural Studies lecturer, Joanna Gentilli, and Arts lecturer and designer, Neil Sheriff, for a fascinating seminar surrounding the Greek concepts of beauty and athletic glorification.

Focusing on artefacts featured in the Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes exhibition, Joanna and Neil will contrast Ancient Greek ideas of inaccessible athletic beauty and worship with contemporary ideas of beauty portrayed in popular culture — raising the question: have things changed that much after all?

Lecture ticket is free with a valid ticket to the Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes exhibition.


Presenters: Joanna Gentilli and Neil Sheriff
Location: Woodside Learning Studio One
