Join curatorial fellow Caitlin Clerkin and Lissette Jiménez, assistant professor of museum studies from San Francisco State University, for a virtual conversation about funerary practices in Roman-period Egypt and displaying ancient funerary materials in museums.
Funerary Portraits from Roman Egypt: Facing Forward is a collaborative effort drawing from the expertise of staff across the museums and other members of our community. The exhibition invites visitors to reflect upon objects that represent the deceased and were once intimately connected with their bodies. It foregrounds artistic processes and technical research but also draws attention to the complicated histories of these objects.
