While some museums are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that are currently open as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.
Egypt’s famous burial customs continued long after the rule of the pharaohs had ended. With eight resplendent mummies, this show at North Carolina Art Museum (6 March–11 July) explores how Egyptian culture was influenced by the Greeks and the Romans between the third century BC and the second century AD. Drawn from the Manchester Museum’s collections, there are also more than 100 other objects on display, including papyrus scrolls, ceramics and jewellery, that reveal how expectations for the afterlife affected the day-to-day experiences of Greco-Roman Egyptians. Find out more from the NCAM’s website.
