Objects Come to Life is a physical and digital exhibition of the Eton Myers Collection of Egyptian Art, on loan to the University of Birmingham, which explores the importance and intrigue of private collections of ancient artefacts.
Many objects arrive into museums from private collections without any contextual information, yet every artefact has their own unique story to tell. Objects Come to Life brings together the research of over a dozen specialists intent on illuminating the lives of some of the mysterious Eton Myers artefacts.
This exhibition has been kindly supported by Eton College, University of Birmingham’s Research and Cultural Collections, and Birmingham Egyptology, and has been generously funded by the University of Birmingham’s College of Arts and Law Postgraduate Development Fund.
