    Joy Kremler

    Join us in peeking into the lives of some of the amazing women of Mediterranean archaeology over the last two hundred years. From Sarah Bane, the wife of the Great Belzoni, to women such as Kathleen Kenyon who became pre-eminent in their fields.

    Joy Kremler is Curatorial Assistant at the National Gallery of Victoria, where she has worked on several of the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibitions including Vienna: Art and Design, Napoleon: Revolution to Empire and Monet’s Garden as well as other exhibitions. She has an MA in Egyptology and her fields of interest are Greek, Roman and Egyptian antiquities, about which she has published several articles.

    All welcome, no bookings required.
