- 01/12/2016National Gallery of Art :: Exhibitions :: 2015 :: Power and Pathos: Bronze Sculpture of the Hellenistic World
December 13, 2015 – March 20, 2016 West Building, Main Floor
Overview: Power and Pathos presents some 50 bronze sculptures and related works, dating from the fourth century BC to the first century AD. They span the Hellenistic period when the art and culture of Greece spread throughout the Mediterranean and lands once conquered by Alexander the Great. Through the medium of bronze, artists were able to capture the dynamic realism, expression, and detail that characterize the new artistic goals of the era. This exhibition will feature works from renowned archaeological museums in Austria, Denmark, France, Georgia, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Spain, Tunisia, the United States, and the Vatican. As only a small fraction of ancient bronzes survives—most were melted down over the centuries--this exhibition offers an unprecedented opportunity to appreciate the importance of bronze in antiquity and the innovations of Hellenistic sculptors.
It is our great pleasure to announce the official launch of the Pre-Columbian Society of New York (PCSNY).

The Bowers Museum's newest exhibit, "Sacred Gold: Pre-Hispanic Art of Colombia," opens to the public March 31 and remains on view through July 1.
This rich exhibit traces the legacy of gold in pre-Hispanic Colombia in more than 200 exceptional objects, supplemented by text, map, chronology and photographs that put in context the pieces that make up this collection from the Museo del Oro and the Banco de Republica, Bogotá, Colombia.
Goldsmithing in Colombia is believed to date from about 800 BCE and is the source for some of its greatest artwork. For the pre-Hispanic cultures of present-day Colombia, gold held no monetary value; it was a gift from the Sun and held a deep symbolic meaning. Gold's physical and chemical properties inspired the creation of expertly crafted figures of spirits, animals and humans that communicated this culture's understanding and philosophy of the universe and all that existed within it.
