Cultural Hybridity in the Funerary Arts of the Roman Provinces



A Space for Dialogue 68


Temporary Exhibitions, Lobby


This installation presents examples of the kind of hybrid visual culture materialized in funeral art from certain key provinces—Syria, Africa Proconsularis (modern Tunisia), and Egypt—created during the era when the Roman Empire was at its greatest extent.

A Space for Dialogue, founded with support from the Class of 1948, is made possible with generous endowments from the Class of 1967, Bonnie and Richard Reiss Jr., Class of 1966, and Pamela J. Joyner, Class of 1979.
