Exhibition opening in Minneapolis

Minneapolis Institute of Art to host Egypt's Sunken Cities

This fall, the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia) will host the Sunken Cities exhibition. The exhibition opens November 4, 2018, and is on view for an extended six-month run through April 14, 2019. It was recently shown at the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris, the British Museum in London, the Museum Rietberg in Zurich and the Saint Louis Art Museum.

"Mia is thrilled to bring this exciting exhibition to the Twin Cities," said Jan-Lodewijk Grootaers, curator of African art and head of Mia’s Department of Arts of Africa and the Americas. "These finds have deep scholarly significance, giving us a greater understanding of the intermingling of Egyptian and Greek politics, religion, and aesthetics, and groundbreaking insights on ancient secret rituals."
