Cycladic Society, 5000 years ago
The exhibition “Cycladic Society, 5000 years ago”, presented at the Cycladic Art Museum on the occasion of its 30th anniversary, is extended to April 9, following audience demand, and considering the opening of Documenta 14. The exhibition, curated by Museum director, Nicos Stampolidis, has already attracted thousands of visitors.
In the absence of writing from the early Cycladic period, the exhibition attempts to produce a straightforward reading of the Cycladic society’s structure during the early Chalcolithic period (3200-2000 B.C.), as well as of their natural environment, the inhabitants’ activities, their social and religious functions, their faiths and beliefs, through the early Cycladic culture’s own artefacts.
The exhibition includes a 5 minute film, scripted and narrated by Professor Nikos Stampolidis, directed by Tzortzis Grigorakis, scored by Marilena Orfanos, and produced by the Cycladic Art Museum and Haos Film.
Including 191 ancient artefacts coming from the Museum’s own collection, the Cyclades Ephorate of Antiquities, and the Paul and Alexandra Canellopoulos Museum, the exhibition is organized by the Museum of Cycladic Art in cooperation with the Cyclades Ephorate of Antiquities.
Guided tours are scheduled on Thursdays at 18:30, and on Saturdays and Sundays at 12:00 and 15:00.
