Learn about the relationships that the Greeks had with the Mediterranean Sea over the centuries. At the BOZAR, from 24/01 to 27/04/14.
This exhibition is held as part of the Greek presidency over the European Council, which will be proposing a multi-disciplinary and varied programme for the occasion.
Nautilus: Navigating Greece will be the focal point.
Discover over a hundred historical pieces and objects (bronze and marble sculptures, potteries...), exhibited outside of Greece for the first time and coming from over 30 museums.
These pieces cover a period that spans from the Cycladic art period (3000 BC) to the Hellenistic period (200 AD) via the Minoan, Mycenaean, Archaic and Classical eras.
With the Sea as a common denominator, Nautilus: Navigating Greece will cover subjects such as nature, identity and all forms of mobility (immigration, travel, trade, etc.).
In addition to the historical pieces, 23 contemporary art pieces, such as photos, paintings and videos will be present.
An exhibition organised by the Centre for Fine Arts, in collaboration with the Greek ministries for Foreign Affairs and Culture.
