    The importance of gender in Ancient Egyptian art directly influenced those in power and the art commissioned on their behalf including sculpture and forms of painting with symbolic imagery. This exhibition details research conducted to show that the ideals and portrayal of gender identity in art from Ancient Egypt closely resembles modern and contemporary art. The works explored in this exhibition display ancient and modern male and female figures of power and the attributes they possess to enhance their social status. The prevalence of masculine forms and terms shows the importance of being male and the impact it has had on art in society.
