Exhibiting ancient art presents unique difficulties. Some objects are large and heavy while others are small and delicate, and almost all are fragile. Hear from the people who have to move, mount, and display these ancient treasures as curators from Art of Ancient Egypt, Nubia, and the Near East, along with conservators and collections care specialists, discuss the challenges of displaying these popular objects.
