Buddhist Artistic Expressions of Enlightenment: a special online Gandhara Connections talk by Dr Kurt Behrendt

    We are delighted to announce this special talk taking place on Monday 1 February 2021 at 2.30pm GMT as part of the Gandhara Connections project's regular programme of collaborations with museums.

    Dr Kurt Behrendt, the curator responsible for the Gandharan works in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, will use this remarkable collection as a springboard for exploring ancient Buddhist art.

    The online talk will be followed by the chance to ask questions through the Crowdcast platform, and a recording will later go on our website
