UCL Grand Challenge support for Gemma Romain

Ideas of African sculpture in archaeology and art in modern Britain

Dr Gemma Romain, Research Associate in the Equiano Centre, with Debbie Challis of the UCL  Petrie Museum, has been awarded a UCL Grand Challenge small grant. Their project is entitled 'Ideas of African sculpture in archaeology and art in modern Britain: Jacob Epstein, Flinders Petrie, Ronald Moody and Edna Manley.'

This community-based project explores the period from 1907 to 1939, looking at the influence of Egyptian archaeological findings in the sculpture of artists Epstein, Moody and Manley and the response by Flinders Petrie to some of these artistic works.

Nwakaego Ahaiwe, community heritage worker and UCL archives student, will be the project researcher and workshop organiser. The project collaborators are Dr Caroline Bressey (UCL Geography/Equiano Centre) , Sally-Ann Ashton (Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge) and Robert Eagle (UCL Communications and Marketing).
