Ancient Iraq:: new discoveries

Through 80 remarkable objects, the exhibition seeks to highlight the challenges of protecting Iraq's diverse cultural heritage following decades of conflict . It will also present the current work of the British Museum's Iraq Scheme to protect this legacy for future generations. Star objects will highlight the scheme's two fieldwork projects in the Ancient Iraqi cities of Girsu and Qalatga Darband and the a rchaeological research into these cities, dating from around 4,000 years ago. One scheme project in southern Iraq focuses on the discovery of a major temple complex. On display in the exhibition for the first time outside of London will be a statue of Gudea, ruler of the ancient state of Lagash, which would have originally been erected within this temple complex. The scheme's second project, in the north of modern Iraq, reveals excavations at a previously unexplored site at the very edge of the Roman Empire, a position challenged by the fearsome Parthians, who embraced Greek cultural traditions passed on by Alexander the Great. Greek-inspired statuettes, personal ornaments influenced by Greek mythology, as well as a statue of the hero Heracles, will also be on display. The final section of the exhibition will address the recent destruction of Iraq's cultural heritage by Daesh (the so-called Islamic State), and the work of the scheme in response to it. Developed in 2014 at the height of this devastation, the scheme delivers hands-on training at excavation sites to Iraqi archaeologists, helping them to assess, document and stabilise cultural heritage sites that have been damaged or destroyed by Daesh. The many new discoveries made at both sites in the scheme show how much there is still to learn about Iraq's unique cultural heritage. With the support of the Dorset Foundation, in memory of Harry M Weinrebe, A British Museum touring exhibition Ancient Iraq: new discoveries will tour to Newcastle and Nottingham between March and December 2020.

Arctic: culture and climate

From 28,000-year-old mammoth ivory jewellery to modern refitted snow mobiles, the objects in this immersive exhibition reveal the creativity and resourcefulness of Indigenous Peoples in the Arctic. Developed in collaboration with Arctic communities, the exhibition celebrates the ingenuity and resilience of Arctic Peoples throughout history. It tells the powerful story of respectful relationships with icy worlds and how Arctic Peoples have harnessed the weather and climate to thrive. The dramatic loss of ice and erratic weather caused by climate change is putting unprecedented pressure on Arctic Peoples, testing their adaptive capacities and threatening their way of life. What happens in the Arctic will affect us all and this exhibition is a timely reminder of what the world can learn from its people. Long ago people knew something was going to happen to this earth. How they knew it, I don't know. An Elder mentioned in the 1940s that this climate is going to change. They meant climate change. – Martha Snowshoe, Teetl'it Gwich'in

Refunds can be requested by emailing tickets@britishmuseum.org, but we would ask visitors to kindly consider their purchase as a donation to the Museum. _________ Join British Museum Curator, Isabel Seligman , for an illustrated introduction to the acclaimed installation library of exile, by artist and author Edmund de Waal. 'A place of translation, a space to sit and read and be', the installation houses more than 2,000 books, written by exiled writers. From Ovid to Dante and Victor Hugo to André Aciman, the books in the library form a record of repression, as well as celebrating the writing of the displaced.

Edmund de Waal: library of exile

Created as a 'space to sit and read and be', library of exile is an installation by British artist and writer, Edmund de Waal, housing more than 2,000 books in translation, written by exiled authors. Unveiled to great acclaim during the Venice Biennale 2019, this porcelain-covered pavilion is intended as a place of contemplation and dialogue. 'It is about exile,' says de Waal, 'what it means to have to move to another country, to speak another language.' From Ovid and Dante to Marina Tsvetaeva and Judith Kerr, the library forms a record of repression while celebrating the response of the displaced. Almost all of the books are in translation, reflecting the idea of language as a form of migration. Each book has an 'ex libris' label so visitors can write their name inside ones that matter to them. The collection can also be explored through an online catalogue where new titles can be suggested. Alongside the books hangs a quartet of de Waal's own vitrines, psalm, I-IV (2019), holding pieces of porcelain, marble and steel. Their arrangements echo the composition of Daniel Bomberg's 16th-century edition of the Talmud – a central text of Judaism – printed in Venice and notable for holding the Hebrew text, Aramaic translation and commentary on a single page. The external walls of the library are painted with liquid porcelain into which de Waal has inscribed the names of the great lost libraries of the world – from Nineveh in sixth-century BC Assyria to those recently lost in Tripoli and Mosul. Following its time at the Museum, the books will be donated to the library of the University of Mosul, Iraq, which is currently undergoing reconstruction, with the help of Book Aid International. Throughout the exhibition run, you can enjoy a rich programme of events, including debates and panel discussions presented in collaboration with English PEN on the themes raised by the library of exile, and a day of free music performances, films, talks, installations and workshops to mark Refugee Week 2020. Following its display at the British Museum, the books featured in the library of exile will be donated by the artist to the University of Mosul Library, with the kind participation of Book Aid International.

French Impressions: prints from Manet to Cézanne

Drawing on the Museum's rich collection of prints – from Manet to Degas and Toulouse-Lautrec to Cézanne – explore the flourishing Impressionist print movement of late 19th century France in this extraordinary free display. Etchings and lithographs were eagerly collected by a burgeoning middle class from the 1860s, thanks largely to print publishers such as Ambroise Vollard, who commissioned many artists of the period to contribute to his lavish print portfolios. He commissioned Cézanne, for example, who had previously shown no interest in the medium, to produce the famous lithograph Les Baigneurs. As Paris exploded with life and creativity, the Impressionists experimented with printmaking, producing striking images of modern city life. Some were heavily influenced by the craze for Japanese art, known as 'japonisme', influenced by the economy of line, unusual viewpoint and flattening of forms that were characteristic of Japanese prints. This display captures the vibrant and dynamic world of the Impressionists as they explored the exciting possibilities of printmaking.

Piranesi drawings: visions of antiquity

Celebrating the 300th anniversary of Piranesi's birth in 1720, this display presents the Museum's complete collection of his drawings, which is unique in being entirely by the master himself. From his grand depictions of ancient Rome, to his recordings of the newly-discovered ruins of Pompeii, Piranesi's fantastical drawings are compelling. Born in Venice and raised in Rome, Piranesi is best known for highly-charged, atmospheric representations of antiquity in his etchings. His work as a printmaker, whether exploring Roman architecture or displaying flights of spatial fancy in the celebrated Carceri ('Prisons') series, has been the subject of numerous exhibitions. His work as a draughtsman, however, is much less explored – yet his drawing underpinned and nourished his flair with the etching needle. The display also considers fascinating questions about his practice raised by new research: the relationship between drawings and prints, his evolving style as a draughtsman and the involvement of studio hands in his later works. Explore the formidable quality of his pen and chalk studies and track his evolution as an artist at this stunning new display.

Rivalling Rome: Parthian coins and culture

Famous for their skill in horsemanship and archery, the Parthians were Iranian peoples who came to power in 248 BC. The Parthian empire became Rome’s most prominent opponent east of the River Euphrates from 96 BC until it was overthrown in AD 224. This East-West conflict continued even after the fall of the Parthian empire, as their successor fought Rome for territorial gain and economic supremacy. Our knowledge of the Parthians relies heavily on Western sources, which often give peaceful negotiations a political spin and present the Parthians as inferior to the Romans. Presenting coins and other objects including belts, figurines and a Roman cameo, this exhibition offers a balanced view of Parthian art and culture, and the empire’s lasting legacy.

Tantra: enlightenment to revolution

A philosophy originating in medieval India, Tantra has been linked to successive waves of revolutionary thought, from its sixth-century transformation of Hinduism and Buddhism, to the Indian fight for independence and the rise of 1960s counterculture. Centering on the power of divine feminine energy, Tantra inspired the dramatic rise of goddess worship in medieval India and continues to influence contemporary feminist thought and artistic practice. From its inception to the present day, Tantra has challenged political and sexual norms around the world. Elements of Tantric philosophy can be found across Asia's diverse cultures, but it remains largely unknown – or misrepresented – in the West. The exhibition showcases extraordinary objects from India, Nepal, Tibet, Japan and the UK, from the seventh century AD to the present, and includes masterpieces of sculpture, painting, prints and ritual objects.
