Flash Talk | In Search of Hamzeh Carr

Terry Wilfong, University of Michigan
Friday, June 3, 2022
12:00-12:30 PM
In 1925, the University of Michigan's archaeological expedition to Egypt commissioned artist Hamzeh Carr to make facsimiles of the colorful murals they were discovering, and these images have been widely reproduced ever since. But who was Hamzeh Carr? In preparation for a future exhibition and publication of the Kelsey Museum's Hamzeh Carr paintings, curator Terry Wilfong has been tracing the amazing career of this mysterious artist and will share some of his surprising findings.

Kelsey Museum Flash Talks are 15-minute Zoom lectures by Kelsey curators, staff members, researchers, and graduate students talking about their recent research or current projects. Each presentation is followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. Flash Talks are free and open to all visitors. They take place at noon on the first Friday of every month.
