Join conservator Haddon Dine and exhibition co-curator Georgina Rayner for a virtual conversation about the manufacturing processes of three-dimensional funerary portraits.

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:

Haddon Dine, Assistant Objects Conservator, Art Institute of Chicago

Georgina Rayner, Associate Conservation Scientist, Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies, Harvard Art Museums
