• International Congress on Ancient Bronzes

On behalf of the organizing committee, we are pleased to announce that the 19th International Congress on Ancient Bronzes will be held October 13-17, 2015 at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California.

Archaeologists, art historians, conservators, curators, scientists, and students will convene at both the Getty Villa in Malibu and the Getty Center in Brentwood to investigate the artistry, craftsmanship, production, conservation, and science of ancient bronzes.

The Congress is organized to coincide with, and be energized by, the exhibition Bronze Sculpture of the Hellenistic World on view at the Getty Center July 28 through November 15, 2015, providing an extraordinary opportunity to see many of the best-known ancient bronzes displayed side-by-side for the first time.

The theme, call for papers, and further information will be distributed via email and posted on this web page in September 2014. Please bookmark this page for future reference or subscribe to receive announcements via email.
