This Tuesday Spotlight lecture within our wider theme of 'Visualising Egypt' explores the diversity and complexity of Egyptian art and how it has inspired contemporary artists.
The idea to make an Amarna exhibition at the Glyptotek in Copenhagen started with the wish to contextualise the museum’s collection from various Amarna localities: the Great Aten Temple, the North Palace and Maru Aten. These are supplemented by important loans from the National Museum of Denmark from the Workmen’s Village and a glass production area. With additional highlights from the Metropolitan Museum, New York, Ägyptisches Museum and Vorderasiatisches Museum, Berlin as well as the Louvre, Paris it is possible to make the city and its inhabitants come alive with a background of graphics, site photos and a 3D video.
Tine Bagh holds an MA in Egyptology and a PhD in Near Eastern Archaeology, concentrating on Egyptian Archeology. Since 2009 she has worked at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek and since 2015 as Curator for the Egyptian Collection. She has curated exhibitions such as ‘In the Shadow of the Pyramids’ with the Petrie finds in the Glyptotek and lately an exhibition on the demon god Bes in collaboration with Amsterdam and Hannover. Tine is also Chair of the Danish Egyptological Society and of CIPEG (the committee for Egyptian collections within ICOM, the International Community of Museums).
