“Recycled Honors: The Reuse and Redisplay of Honorific Portrait Statues in Pompeii”

Presented by:
Brenda Longfellow, associate professor, University of Iowa School of Art and Art History

4 p.m. Wednesday, April 3
Binghamton University Art Museum
(Reception to follow)


Discussions of the reuse of Roman honorific statues have primarily focused on examples of so-called damnatio memoriae, where the image of a condemned emperor or elite is reworked into that of someone else, with the goal of erasing the memory of the former.

Longfellow’s talk focuses on three examples of reused portrait statues in Pompeii that at first glance might all be classified as examples of so-called damnatio memoriae. By examining the repurposed statues within their local Pompeian contexts, this presentation considers the effects of obviously modified statues incorporated into spaces where they may have been seen by the same people who knew them in their original states, and who probably recognized either the original honorand or the subsequent one, at least by reputation.

RSVP deadline: Contact Tracey Greene at tgreene@binghamton.edu by March 25 


Sponsored by Mario and Antoinette Romano Endowment, Harpur College of Arts and Sciences Dean's Office, Art History Department and Binghamton University Art Museum.
