EXHIBITION DEDICATED TO ARMENIA TO BE OPENED AT NEW YORK'S METROPOLITAN MUSEUM - PHOTOS

10:37, 2 March, 2015

YEREVAN, MARCH 2, ARMENPRESS. An exhibition devoted to Armenia
may be held in one the world's most prominent cultural centers the
Metropolitan Museum of Art, located in New York City in 2017. The
representatives of the museum's Department of Medieval Art and
the Cloisters are currently in Armenia discussing the details of
organization of the possible exhibition.

On March 1, the head of Department of Medieval Art and the Cloisters
at The Metropolitan Museum of Art Griffith Mann and Helen Evans, the
Metropolitan Museum of Art's Michael Jaharis Curator for Byzantine Art,
visited the History Museum of Armenia, toured in the cultural centre,
and watched the exhibits.

Following the tour, Helen Evans, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's
Michael Jaharis Curator for Byzantine Art, talked to the journalists
and noted that everything was great, but they are particularly
interested in the medieval art.

As reports "Armenpress", among other things, Evans noted: "We in
our museum have a tradition to discuss the exhibitions 3-5 years
beforehand and clarify all things. It's noteworthy that the Armenian
art was introduced in a row of exhibitions. The Armenian samples
became a part of three different exhibitions." In addition, Helen
Evans stated that she is hopeful that an exhibition dedicated to
Armenia will be held at Metropolitan in 2017.

Michel David-Weill Curator in Charge of the Department of Medieval Art
and the Cloisters Griffith Mann underscored that he was particularly
impressed that history is introduced by the objects.
