We gladly give notice of this exhibition, organised and hosted by the Onassis Cultural Center New York from March 9 to June 24, 2017:


A World of Emotions: Ancient Greece, 700 BC – 200 AD


Starting on March 9, the Onassis Cultural Center New York brings to vivid life the emotions of the people of ancient Greece, and prompts questions about how we express, control, manipulate, or simulate feelings in our own society, by presenting its groundbreaking exhibition A World of Emotions: Ancient Greece, 700 BC – 200 AD.

Communicating across millennia, stunning ancient Greek masterpieces bring emotion to the fore. More than 130 artworks from world-renowned museums—including the Acropolis Museum, British Museum, Louvre, National Archaeological Museum of Athens, Museum of Cycladic Art, Vatican Museums, and many more—open pathways to a wide world of unending and universal emotion.

The basis for the exhibition is the research study of Dr. Angelos Chaniotis, now Professor of Ancient History and Classics, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, under the title “The social and cultural construction of Emotions: the Greek paradigm,” conducted at the University of Oxford a few years ago. Dr. Angelos Chaniotis is co-curator of A World of Emotions together with Nikolaos Kaltsas, Director Emeritus, National Archaeological Museum, Athens; and Ioannis Mylonopoulos, Associate Professor of Ancient Greek Art and Archaeology, Columbia University.
