Cuerpo & Belleza en la Grecia antigua

Discóbolo (réplica), II a.C.

Cuerpo & Belleza en la Grecia antigua: Colección The British Museum” es una muestra integrada por 116 piezas de arte helénico y romano que se exhibirá en la sala de exposiciones temporales del Museo Nacional de Antropología desde este jueves 10 de noviembre hasta el próximo domingo 22 de enero de 2012.

La muestra, cuya curaduría estuvo a cargo de Ian Jenkins y Victoria Clare Turner del Museo Británico, centra su propuesta en el estudio del cuerpo humano durante una decena de módulos especializados, desde el periodo que va del siglo VI a.C hasta el II d.C. o periodo romano. Asimismo, representa el resultado de una fructífera asociación entre el Museo Nacional de Antropología y el Museo Británico, una asociación que hizo posible la muestra “Moctezuma: emperador azteca” presentada en el recinto inglés del 24 de septiembre de 2009 al 24 de enero de 2010.

En dichos módulos podrán observarse espacios dedicados a la belleza natural del ser humano, la del hombre y la mujer común, pero también las propuestas estéticas del ideal atlético, la del superhombre, los dioses antropomórficos, las bestias mitológicas y los filósofos o escritores, hombres de pensamiento.

Es así que la muestra recibe al espectador con la célebre escultura “Discóbolo”, o “El lanzador de disco”, una réplica en mármol proveniente del siglo II de nuestra era, atribuida al escultor Mirón de Eleuteras a mediados del siglo V a.C. y la cual hubo pertenecido al Emperador Adriano.

Dicha escultura tomó gran relevancia en la era moderna ya que fue elegida como símbolo de los juegos olímpicos de Londres 1948, fecha que el gobierno británico quiso recordar a finales de este año ya que la muestra Cuerpo & Belleza es también una forma de presentar la grandeza del pueblo inglés previo a la justa olímpica 2012, justa que se llevará a cabo, por cuarta ocasión, en la capital londinense.

Jarras de figuras rojas, esculturas en piedra y mármol, bustos, vaciados en bronce y oro, estatuillas, mosaicos y platos son los diversos soportes que la muestra alberga. En ella podrán observarse desde ánforas de figuras rojas con pasajes mitológicos y enfrentamientos de Hércules con bestias fantásticas, hasta platos con decorados eróticos; desde mini estatuillas realistas sobre el ciudadano común, hasta esculturas colosales sobre dioses y monstruos; desde inocentes jovencitas jugando mientras recogen flores en un prado, hasta sátiros en esforzado intento por mancillar el tierno cuerpo de un ninfa.

La muestra “Cuerpo & Belleza en la Grecia antigua: Colección The British Museum” se exhibirá de martes a domingo de 9:00 a 19:00 horas hasta el próximo domingo 22 de enero en la sala de exposiciones temporales del Museo Nacional de Antropología, Reforma y Gandhi s/n, colonia Chapultepec Polanco, Ciudad de México.
