ABSTRACT:The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, houses the largest collection of ancient Nubian art outside Sudan. However, since 2006 only a small number of objects have been on display. A new special exhibition, running through January 20, 2020, brings together more than 430 objects from the three great capitals of Kush – Kerma, Napata, and Meroe. In addition to highlighting exceptional works of art, the exhibition provides an opportunity to ask new questions, explore new interpretive themes, and assess visitors’ responses in order to inform planning for the eventual reinstallation of the collection. This paper will discuss the planning process, “big ideas,” and execution of the exhibition.
