Odysseys_National Archaeological Museum
03 October to 31 October
The new exhibition of the National Archaeological Museum "Odysseys" is the main commemorative event on the occasion of the 150th anniversary since the foundation of the Museum. It attempts to give an account of the adventurous journey of man through time considered from an abstract and symbolic perspective that draws its inspiration from the Homeric Odyssey. Without reciting the mythological epic of Homer the exhibition is inspired by the archetypal character of Odysseus and recounts through the emblematic, as well as the lesser-known ancient works of the National Archaeological Museum, the long chronicle of the beleaguered man, his incessant endeavour to tame his environment, conquer new places, broaden his horizons, establish well-governed societies and fight against the perishable nature of his existence with the aid of love and creative act.
Opening: Monday, 3 October (The exhibition will have a year-long duration.)
Address: National Archaeological Museum, Patission 44, Athens 10682 (plan a route)
