Crazy for Egypt
Alastair Sooke, Ghislaine Wood & Stephanie Moser
The land of the Pharaohs has long been a source of inspiration for Western artists, but the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922 unleashed a craze for all things Egyptian as never before, influencing everything from the visual arts to music and literature.
Join art critic Alastair Sooke in conversation with Ghislaine Wood, from the V&A, and Professor Stephanie Moser of Southampton University for this unique Friday at 5pm about the influence of ancient Egypt on our cultural lives.
