This symposium organized by Matthew S. Santirocco, Professor of Classics and Angelo J. Ranieri Director of Ancient Studies (NYU), will bring together a panel of speakers to explore the history and archaeology of ancient Persepolis—along with its revival in the modern era, in the visual imaginations of artists such as Parviz Tanavoli and others.

This event is in conjunction with the exhibition Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU’s Abby Weed Grey Collection on view at the Grey Art Gallery from September 10 to December 7, 2019.
