DIVINE MIGRATIONS

From 24 June to 16 November 2015

MuCEM J4 – Level 2 - 800 m2

 

Temporary exhibition, organised jointly by the MuCEM and the Fondation Gandur pour l’Art, with the exceptional participation of the Musées d’Art et d’Histoire of the City of Geneva

 

General Commissioner: Myriame Morel-Deledalle, Chief Curator of Cultural Heritage, Director of the Department of History (MuCEM)

Associate Commissioners: Jean-Luc Chappaz, Chief Curator, Director of Archaeology for the Musées d’Art et d’Histoire of the City of Geneva, and Dr Robert Steven Bianchi, Chief Curator, Curator of Archaeology for the Fondation Gandur pour l’Art, Geneva.

Scenography: Sylvain Roca

 

The Musée des Civilisations de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée (MuCEM) is taking a fresh look at the great polytheistic religions of antiquity, through a collection of exceptional works and archaeological objects on loan from the Fondation Gandur pour l’Art and the Musées d’Art et d’Histoire in Geneva, as well as the Musées de Marseille and the Musée Départemental Arles Antique.

 

This new exhibition focuses on three basins of civilisation in the Mediterranean – Egypt, Greece and Rome – within which humans have differently imagined their gods and developed pantheons with characteristics unique to each culture. The exhibition presents ritual objects and images of worship that enabled ancient peoples to represent the world of the divine and to participate in the quest for immortality.

 

Far from being isolated and static religious expressions, the cults of these pantheons intersected in the heart of the Mediterranean. Advanced by trade and even military conquests, the material and intellectual exchanges between ancient civilisations have shaped the recurring theological forms.

 

Divine Migrations presents more than 200 ancient works (dating from the 3rd-2nd millennium BC to the 3rd century AD), testifying to the adoption of deities from elsewhere or the formation of new composite divine forms. It examines the dialogue between the Egyptian, Greek and Roman pantheons, in their practices, beliefs and representations of the divine.

 


 

This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation

A “Divine Migrations” themed voyage is being offered by Ponant Yacht Cruises.
