Enter the Tomb: Tutankhamun
Take an immersive journey into the tomb of Egypt's most famous pharaoh.
In Enter the Tomb visitors take an immersive journey into the world of Tutankhamun and see the tomb of Egypt's most famous pharaoh as it was found 100 years ago. The legend of King Tut captured imaginations globally when, in 1922, his tomb was unearthed by British explorer Howard Carter and financier Lord Carnarvon.
The digital installation created by Simon Che De Boer, Nick Taylor, Brenden Kinney and James Edgar will hit Karangahape Road's Raynham Park as part of Artweek Auckland. Step inside the tomb and immerse yourself in the story of its art, history, construction and mythology through interactive elements. The group will also present a detailed window into the tomb of Queen Nefertari through state-of-the-art technology.
The tenth edition of Artweek Auckland returns between 10–18 October to celebrate our city's diverse artistic community. Featuring exhibitions, happenings and workshops across ten precincts, each area aims to highlight its unique place in Auckland's artistic landscape. This year's eight-day celebration is packed with over 50 late-night events, free guided tours, drawing clubs, exhibitions and beverage tastings for art aficionados.
