About

Fellow Jen Thum explores the basics of ancient Egyptian representation, including why their bodies seem to “walk like an Egyptian.”

Our galleries are full of stories—this series of drop-in talks gives visitors a chance to hear the best ones! The talks highlight new works on view, take a fresh look at old favorites, investigate artists’ materials and techniques, and reveal the latest discoveries by curators, conservators, fellows, visiting artists, technologists, and other contributors.

Offered by:
Jen Thum, Inga Maren Otto Curatorial Fellow, Division of Academic and Public Programs

Free with museum admission. Gallery talks are limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before each talk, tickets will become available at the admissions desk.

Please meet in the Calderwood Courtyard, in front of the digital screens between the shop and the admissions desk. Museum staff will be on hand to collect tickets.
