Conférence – Displaying the Royal Collections of the Topkapi Palace: The Imperial Treasury, the Chamber of Sacred Relics, and the Ottoman Imperial Museum – 30 January 17:15 Nilay Özlü (KRC Barakat Postdoctoral Scholar)

KRC Research Seminars
KRC Lecture Room, Thursdays, 17:15-18:30 hrs
Convenor: Umberto Bongianino

This presentation will discuss the politics of collecting and display in the late Ottoman context and will focus on different collections that were held and displayed at three royal pavilions in the Topkapi Palace: The Fatih Kiosk, the Privy Chamber, and the Tiled Pavilion. The functions of all three pavilions, originally built by Mehmed II (the Conqueror) in the 15th century, have changed within centuries and they ended up housing various royal collections and treasuries. By the 19th century, these pavilions –and the collections within– were being visited by diverse audiences; and different display techniques were adopted that conveyed multiple narratives of modernity, tradition, heritage, dynastic continuity, and authority.

Exposition – Clay, Modeling African Design – until November 14, 2021, University Collections Gallery: African Art, Harvard Art Museums

Pitcher with spout and handle, Algeria, Kabyle, late 19th–early 20th century. Ceramic. Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University, Gift of Dr. Algernon Coolidge, 31-27-50/B5085, TL41971.42.

This exhibition highlights artistic innovation and creativity in Africa as seen primarily through the traditions of ceramic arts from across the continent and over its long history. Countering the assumption that African arts and societies are largely unchanging and bound to traditions and customs, the remarkable diversity of objects and styles on display here tells a different story. A selection of more than 50 works on loan from the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University, including those by newly discovered Nigerian artist Alice Osayewe, are shown alongside works from the Harvard Art Museums permanent collections, such as contemporary photographs by Malian artist Malick Sidibé.
