Creative Connections: Portraits of Women Scientists and Artists

An exhibition of photographic portraits of female scientists and artists.

Goddesses, by Marian Maguire

Tue 17 September - Fri 13 December

Museum of Classical Archaeology

In this new series of beautiful, large-scale and timely prints, New Zealand artist Marian Maguire imagines how the passing millenia might have affected the traditional roles of the ancient Greek goddesses.

Assuming the Greek gods are immortal and therefore have a continued presence, Maguire wonders: would they do things differently? Would they stay the same and maintain the status quo or would they choose to change, if they could see us now? Would they stay, or would they walk away?

Athena, Aphrodite, Artemis, Hera and mother and daughter, Demeter and Persephone, are all present as restless deities in this exhibition.

The exhibition features five colour lithographs and one etching, all on display together amongst the casts in the Museum of Classical Archaeology's Cast Gallery. Maguire has borrowed from ancient Greek vase painting and statuary to make these works, but none of the figures are exact copies. Some are adapted from existing representations; others are inventions, freshly drawn in ancient style.
