From now until 30 April 2017, you can come face-to-face with six ancient Egyptian mummies at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney!

You can get a chance to use the latest technology to go beyond the wrappings and discover what lies beneath these exalted kings of ancient Egypt.

The exhibit is called “Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives.” The six mummies were selected from the British Museum collection who lived and died in Egypt between 1,800 to 3,000 years ago. They will be on display alongside their 3D CT scan visualisations that unlock hidden secrets and knowledge of mummification. These will provide a unique insight into the everyday lives of the ancient Egyptians.

The exhibit wants to pose questions such as: what is the significance of the paintings that adorn a coffin? How were bodies mummified to grant the deceased eternal life in the afterlife?

The answers lie in the exhibit along with cutting-edge technology that can reveal the age, sex, identity, state of health and mummification of each mummy.

On the other hand, the Moran Arts Foundation will be exhibiting works that are part of its Doug Moran National Portrait Prize, Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize and School Student Moran Contemporary Photographic Prizes at Juniper Hall from 2 November 2016 to 5 February 2017.

The Moran Arts Foundation holds an annual exhibit that brings together the best in Australian portraiture and photography with the theme: contemporary in Australia.
