The Colors of Clay: Special Techniques in Athenian Vases

The J. Paul Getty Museum at The Getty Villa

Malibu, California

This symposium is related to a major loan exhibition of the same
name at the J. Paul Getty Villa from June 8 - September 4, 2006.

The Colors of Clay brings together approximately one hundred vases
produced in Athens during the Archaic and Classical periods.  The
exhibition explores the use of the special decorative techniques, a
subject never before examined as a whole.  The symposium brings
together an international group of scholars, curators, conservators,
and scientists to explore and address issues raised by this
exhibition including:

    Social Contexts for Athenian Vases in Special Techniques
    Conservation, Analysis, Experimentation
    Artists, Workshops, and Production
    Ancient Markets and Exchange
