Amos Rex, Art Museum of Estonia, and Museo Egizio will show a unique two part exhibition on Antique Egyprian Art.

Opening in October 2020, an exhibition titled Egypt of Glory will be shown in two parallel locations – at Amos Rex, Helsinki, and at the Art Museum of Estonia’s Kumu Art Museum, Tallinn. The rare two-part exhibition is based on one of the most important collections of Ancient Egyptian art and culture outside Egypt – the collection of Museo Egizio in Turin, Italy.

Egypt of Glory features over 500 exhibits from the Museo Egizio which will tell the long history of Egyptian civilization, from its origins to the Ptolemaic Period. Time and Art will constitute a common thread that will accompany visitors to discover the Egypt of the first millennium.

In Amos Rex we believe that knowing the past helps us to deal with the future. The exhibition will show what the newest technologies can bring into an exhibition about Ancient Egypt.

The exhibitions will open on consequent days; at Amos Rex on October 8th, 2020, and at Kumu Art Museum on October 9th, 2020.
