« Georgia, a history of encounters »
Thursday, November 23 and Saturday, November 25
Our Museum will host a heritage exhibition looking at the culture, history and art of Georgia since Neolithic times. At the crossroads between East and West, criss-crossed by trade routes linked to the Silk Roads, and the object of the ambitions of the great powers that have always surrounded it, Georgia has been a place of encounters and exchanges that have nourished its culture. The ritualized art of the table and refined cuisine will serve as the starting point for the exhibition. Metalwork – gold and bronze – will also play a crucial role in the tour. From the Bronze Age onwards, Georgian goldsmiths developed pieces of unprecedented delicacy and sumptuousness.
