Cité Magazine of the Pointe-à-Callière Foundation
Volume 6, No. 1
The magazine Cité is produced by the Pointe-à-Callière Foundation. It is addressed to its Members, its donators, its partners and its sponsors. This issue showcases the exhibition Queens of Egypt for which the mere title sparks the imagination. Produced by Pointe-à-Callière in partnership with the Turin museum of Egyptology, Museo Egizio, Queens of Egypt examines Egyptian civilization from a unique angle: the place of women of power in society during the New Kingdom period. The exhibition, which gets its North American première in Montréal, takes visitors back some 3,500 years to Egypt’s New Kingdom period, where they will encounter women who lived storied lives and played leading political, military, religious, or cultural roles in Egyptian society.
