Exhibition Opening - Sacred Spaces - Saturday, April 12

Posted to Event by Ms. Pam Kosty of University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology at 3:28 PM

The splendor of Byzantine Christian art—preserved through the ages in early Christian churches in both Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine Empire, and the Cappadocia region of Turkey—is the focus of this large-scale photography exhibition. Sacred Spaces: The Photography of Ahmet Ertug, a two-part exhibition fittingly presented under the vaulted ceilings of the Museum's first floor Merle-Smith Galleries, features 26 works by innovative, acclaimed Turkish photographer Ahmet Ertug. Through his lens, Ertug captures the grandeur of the ancient Byzantine churches, all designated UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the legendary Hagia Sophia, in crisp, bright, detailed photographs. A digital-screen slide show of exterior images of the churches, and an interactive kiosk where visitors can explore the rich iconography depicted in Ertug's photographs, enhance the exhibition.
