Brand Snapshot | Exclusive event opportunities at the Saatchi Gallery as Tutankhamun’s treasures make final London appearance
The Saatchi Gallery is excited to announce hospitality and event opportunities around the upcoming arrival of TUTANKHAMUN: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh. The new major exhibition will showcase the largest collection of King Tutankhamun’s treasures ever to travel out of Egypt.
Opening for a limited run beginning on Saturday 2nd November 2019, the exhibition will provide an iconic backdrop for corporate hospitality and bespoke events at the Saatchi Gallery on London’s King’s Road this winter.
Event options will include drink receptions and dinner with speakers such as Earl Carnarvon, an opportunity to uncover the cause of death of the boy King through forensic team-building and the ultimate children’s sleepover at the Gallery.
Produced by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities and IMG, and presented in London by Viking Cruises, the Saatchi Gallery engagement will be the third stop of a 10-city world tour and is set to feature more than 150 original artefacts from Tutankhamun’s tomb, including 60 on their first journey outside Egypt.
Visitors can discover the legend of the golden king before the historic treasures return to Cairo to be permanently housed with Tutankhamun’s full collection at the new Grand Egyptian Museum.
“The discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb is a timeless story known throughout the world, and this exhibition will present these important historical artefacts in a highly innovative way through immersive displays. We are thrilled and honoured to be hosting this culturally significant exhibition,” says Philippa Adams, Director, Saatchi Gallery.
Through nine immersive galleries that incorporate digital content, contextual material, audio and custom soundscapes, visitors will follow Tutankhamun’s passage into everlasting life, discovering how his funerary objects were used on the perilous journey. As they explore his life, visitors will become part of perpetuating the Pharaoh’s immortality: to speak his name is to make him live.
TUTANKHAMUN: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh explores the meaning of the items in the royal tomb and the dual storyline of its discovery against all odds.
The London engagement, presented by Viking Cruises and supported by Official Real Estate Partner CBRE, will be the third stop on the exhibition’s 10-city world tour following residences in Los Angeles and Paris.
