Skulpturhalle Basel hosts Acropolis Museum exhibition

An exhibition promoting the New Acropolis Museum in Athens will open at Skulpturhalle Basel, Switzerland, on May 12, part of an initiative by the Hellenic Foundation for Culture (HFC).

The exhibition focuses on the excavations conducted on the spot where the new museum stands today, some 400 metres from the Acropolis, and serve as a pre-opening of the New Acropolis Museum next month. The exhibition is organised by the Organisation for the Construction of the New Acropolis Museum (OANMA).

Among the exhibits will be a scale model of the new museum in relation to the Acropolis hill and the surrounding urban environment, as well as a second scale model that shows the foundations of the museum along with parts of the Parthenon and other artifacts.

The exhibition will run until June 10, 2009

On the inauguration day of the exhibition, a conference on “The New Acropolis Museum and its exhibits” will be held at the University of Basel in cooperation with HFC, OANMA, and the 1st department of prehistoric and classical antiquities of Athens.
