A webinar in celebration of BIPS 60th anniversary, centered around the Epic Iran exhibition at the V&A
Please join us online for a webinar featuring Professors Robert Hillenbrand and Bernard O'Kane for a conversation. Moderated by Dr Richard McClary, the two speakers will address some of the grand themes and major issues in the study of Iranian art and architecture, particularly, but not limited to, the Islamic art of the medieval period. As two of the leading figures in the field, with extensive experience both in Iran and working with material in all the major international collections, Robert Hillenbrand and Bernard O'Kane bring many decades of knowledge and experience to the conversation.
Forming part of the 60th anniversary celebrations of the British Institute of Persian Studies, the discussion will be based on some of the objects and themes included in the Epic Iran exhibition, and this webinar is an extension of the tour of the exhibition taking place in London in the morning, and the webinar open to anyone in the world who wants to join the event remotely.
