  Beyond the Nile

Beyond the Nile
Egypt and the Classical World

Edited by Jeffrey Spier, Timothy Potts, and Sara E. Cole

The history of the ancient world is not simply the stories of Egypt, Greece, and Rome as separate cultures, but an interwoven narrative of aesthetic and technological exchange, hybridization, and collaboration. This milestone publication is the first to offer a comprehensive account of these vicissitudes of cultural exchange, covering over 2500 years with lively prose and gorgeous illustrations.

This catalogue accompanies an exhibition on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center through September 9, 2018.

  Plato in L.A.

Plato in L.A.
Contemporary Artists' Visions

Donatien Grau

Over a millennium has passed since Plato wrote his dialogues, but the concepts he presented still hold powerful sway over artists' imaginations even to this day. This volume examines the work of more than ten artists, including Mike Kelley, Jeff Koons, Raymond Pettibon, and Adrian Piper, to illuminate how Platonic thought, from the Socratic method to the realm of the forms, shapes art now.

This catalogue accompanies an exhibition on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Villa through September 3, 2018.
