International Conference: From Kallias to Kritias

The arts and culture produced in Athens from the signing of the peace treaty with Persia in 449 B.C. to the end of the Peloponnesian War in 403 B.C. are the subject of this international conference. The commencement of the Acropolis building program paved the way for the creation of Classical art, an “imperialist” art that originated in Athens and spread to other parts of Greece and beyond. The temporary conquest of Athens by Sparta and the installation of the regime of the Thirty Tyrants toward the end of the century marked a dramatic change in the status and political power of the Athenians.
Papers will investigate the development of the visual arts in this period, characterized by massive building, political conflicts, and imperialism on the part of Athens. The focus of the conference will be on Athens and Attica. The papers deal with many types of material evidence (architecture, sculpture, ceramics) as well as the results of new excavations and new research relating to this seminal period.
