New partnership with Tate Liverpool and 'Surrealism in Egypt: Art et Liberté 1938 – 1948'
Egyptology will be celebrated in an innovative way by developing the university's own unique exhibitions, activities and events, including behind the scenes insight into curation, gallery tours and art history.
A free talk on Wednesday 15 November by the curators of 'Surrealism in Egypt: Art et Liberté 1938 – 1948', will launch the partnership, where they'll be giving an insight into this groundbreaking show, just prior to its opening on Friday 17 November.
The next key event will be 'The Book of the Dead: Passport through the Underworld' workshop, running from 4-10 December at Tate Liverpool. Armed with a visual appreciation of the ancient Egyptian underworld from Egyptology experts and inspiration from an established comic book illustrator, visitors will be able to interpret the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead by illustrating its spells.
This workshop is a collaboration between the University of Liverpool’s Garstang Museum of Archaeology, Department of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology, photographer Julia Thorne and comic book artist, Leigh Gallagher.
Visitors can also view 'The Book of the Dead: Passport through the Underworld' exhibition, which is on show at the university's Victoria Gallery & Museum until September 2018.
