Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum takes a close look at one of its most treasured works

A daring new exhibition, Life, Death & Revelry, takes a close look at one of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s most treasured works, the Farnese Sarcophagus, widely considered the most important ancient Roman sarcophagus in America. This immersive installation explores the piece’s history, including new scholarship, and features a new artwork inspired by the Sarcophagus, a 3D digital projection by Artists-in-Residence Paul Kaiser and Marc Downie of OpenEndedGroup. “This exhibition traces this artwork’s journey from ancient Rome to nineteenth-century New England, and allows us to place it in conversation with a contemporary new media artwork,” said Dr. Christina Nielsen, the William and Lia Poorvu Curator
