Emotions, the exhibition from the Onassis Cultural Center New York arrives in Athens exploring the unseen world of emotions in the personal, social and political life of antiquity. An unusual archaeological exhibition that focuses on the portrayal of the ‘ethos of the soul’ in 129 ancient art-works.
The exhibition will be displayed in a new tailor made setting, developed by the Acropolis Museum in collaboration with the architect, Eleni Spartsi. The general oversight of the updated display has been undertaken by the President of the Acropolis Museum himself, Professor Dimitris Pandermalis.
Curated by: Angelos Chaniotis, Professor of Ancient History and Classics in the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton and a member of the Board of the Onassis Foundation’s affiliate organization in the US; Nikos Kaltsas, honorary director of the National Archaeological Museum; and Ioannis Mylonopoulos, assistant professor of Ancient Greek Art and Archaeology at Columbia University.
