THE TEMPLE OF DENDUR:
MÉTIERS D'ART SHOW SETTING

Karl Lagerfeld chose the sandstone Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as the setting for the Métiers d'art 2018/19 show. Commissioned during the reign of the Roman emperor Augustus Caesar around 10 B.C, the Temple is today one of the most recognizable symbols of ancient Egypt. Gifted to the United States in 1965 in recognition of the country’s support of the UNESCO  International Campaign to Save the Monuments of Nubia, and awarded to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1967, the Temple continues to inspire all who see it.
