Join NGV Educator, Johanna Petkov for an introductory talk on Pharaoh, the 2024 NGV Melbourne Winter Masterpieces® exhibition that celebrates three thousand years of ancient Egyptian art and culture.

Through more than 500 objects, including monumental sculpture, architecture, temple statuary, exquisite jewellery, papyri, coffins and a rich array of funerary objects, Pharaoh explores the phenomenon of those all-powerful kings claiming a divine origin.

Delve into the themes behind the carefully curated selection of exceptional pieces in this special introductory talk, and be guided through the realities, mythologies and iconographies of kingship in ancient Egypt.
