The first rehang of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Egyptian collections in some 25 years offers fresh insights into life, death and art along the Nile. Around 100 objects in the new gallery, among them painted images, sculptures and funerary masks, span a period of more than 3,000 years. Visitors will also get an insight into the history of the formation of the collection. The new gallery opens on 11 February. Find out more from the Art Institute of Chicago’s website.
