Chisel and Memory: The Contribution of Marble Craftsmanship to the Restoration of the Acropolis Monuments
WHAT: Over forty years of photographs and documentation of the marble craftsmen of the Acropolis at work. Marble craftsmen dominate the worksite, like forms in flight balancing on towering scaffolds, maneuvering the huge blocks of marble and conservation materials into and out of position. Grouped around six themes of self-denial, labour, cooperation, zeal, pride and companionship, the exhibition highlights the human element of this arduous work.
WHEN: Until September 30
WHERE: Acropolis Museum, Dionysiou Areopagitou 15, Athens, Tel: +30.210.900.0900, theacropolismuseum.gr
