Join Harvard professor Kathleen Coleman and exhibition co-curator Jen Thum for a virtual conversation on how grief is expressed in ancient Egyptian portraits and teaching about loss.


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.


Led by:

Kathleen Coleman, James Loeb Professor of the Classics, Harvard University

Jen Thum, Assistant Director of Academic Engagement and Assistant Research Curator, Division of Academic and Public Programs, Harvard Art Museums
