Description: Striking Power: Iconoclasm in Ancient Egypt is the first exhibition to explore the history of iconoclasm in relation to ancient Egyptian art. With nearly forty masterpieces on loan from the renowned collection of the Brooklyn Museum, Striking Power will examine widespread campaigns of targeted destruction driven by political and religious motivations. Focusing on the legacies of pharaohs Hatshepsut (reigned ca. 14781458 BCE) and Akhenaten (reigned ca. 13531336 BCE), as well as the destruction of objects in late Antiquity, the exhibition will pair damaged works, from fragmented heads to altered inscriptions, with undamaged examples.
