17 May – 24 May 2019
As part of Turkey’s Museum Week (Müze Haftası), the Milet Museum hosted our exhibition of archival photographs “Layers of Landscape / Peyzaj Katmanları” in their main exhibition space between 17th and 24th May 2019. It was a great pleasure to be able to bring these photos back to the peninsula, and talk to locals about their experience of the landscape including some who have worked as part of the excavations in the region for many years. The opening of the exhibition was on the morning of Friday 17th, opened by Didim’s current İlçe Kaymakamı Mehmet Türköz , and attended by local reporters (see article here). Local school children were also at the opening, as part of an open day with extra activities for learning about objects in the museum and the work of archaeologists (for more photos from the event see here).
The exhibition panels will stay in Miletos with a view to being re-exhibited near the temple of Didyma in the near future.
