Life, Death, and Revelry

The exhibition and accompanying catalog trace The Farnese Sarcophagus’ journey over two millennia from ancient Rome to contemporary Boston. It has inspired generations of artists, collectors, conservators, and viewers since its rediscovery.

For the first time in over 100 years, we have moved this monumental work from its usual location, wedged between columns in the Palace courtyard, into Hostetter Gallery, so that all four sides of it are now visible. This exhibition presents new discoveries by our conservation team about its original colorful appearance and the restoration campaigns it has undergone in the last few centuries.

This ancient work will be in conversation with Maenads and Satyrs, a 3D video installation by 2012
