From Nubia to Sudan: A photo exhibition at the Benaki Museum of Islamic Art

There are some moments in life that need time to sink in and allow a full apprehension of their significance. This is for us the case with the opening of our photo exhibition at the Benaki Museum of Islamic Art, titled “From  Nubia to Islam through the eyes of the Greek-Norwegian Archaeological Mission“.

It is not often that such an opportunity is offered, to speak about our favorite topics on Nubia, to share them with so many people, and to do all that in the frame of an exhibition that brings images from the Middle Nile Valley to the Greeks, one of the most prominent diaspora communities in Sudan.

The first week of this experience is coming to its academic colophon tomorrow with our lecture at the Norwegian Institute at Athens. Until we are back to normal rhythms consider this still an entry relating to the setting up of the whole thing…
