Masterpiece Conversations: Antiquities

For this episode the focus is on antiquities and Thomas is delighted to be joined by Tom Hardwick – an Egyptologist who writes about Egyptian sculpture and the history of collecting, and Consulting Curator of the Hall of Ancient Egypt at the Houston Museum of Natural Science – and by Madeleine Perridge, Gallery Director at Kallos Gallery, London, among the leading international specialists in artworks from the ancient world.

Masterpiece Conversations is a series of podcasts that in each episode brings together a leading curator and art dealer to offer a taste of what people are really talking about right now in a particular field.

Thomas Marks, editor of Apollo magazine, will host for these discussions, in which we’re aiming to override the perceived ‘church and state’ separation between museums and the art market – or at least to explore what conversation and collaboration between them makes possible. We’ll be talking about what first drew our guests to their particular fields – and what’s really inspiring them at this point about the art they’re immersed in. And we’ll dive into what the priorities are for museums and the market in that field at the moment – where they coincide and where they might even diverge productively.
