BEYOND. Death and Afterlife in Ancient Greece
from 11/12/2014 until 8/2/2015

Through the 120 objects from 21 Greek and international museums emerges one of the most important issues that puzzled and continues to concern humans; the fate of the immortal soul after the death of the mortal body. The descriptions in the Homeric epics of the underworld as they were depicted on ancient works of different periods is the starting point of this exhibition.

HYGIEIA. Health, Illness, Treatment from Homer to Galen
from 19/11/2014 until 31/5/2015

How did ancient Greeks care for their nutrition and bodies? How did they address the issue of public health? What would an athlete do if he got injured 2.500 years ago? Were there any surgical tools? How did they use opium and other pharmaceutical substances and herbs?
From the dawn of its existence, humanity has strived to improve all aspects of living conditions.

The Depiction of Death in the Work of El Greco
from 14/11/2014 until 8/2/2015

The central showpiece of this small tribute will be El Greco’s painting The Burial of Christ of the National Gallery of Athens. The painting will be accompanied by two Pieta (Lamentation). The first one belongs to the collection of the Hispanic Society of America and the second one to a private collection. Both works will be exhibited digitally in almost actual size.
