Danish Expedition Gallery
In collaboration with the Raparin Antiquities Directorate, DAEI had the pleasure of curating the ‘DANISH EXPEDITION GALLERY’; the first - and permanent- exhibition at the Raparin Civilization Museum in the city of Rania.
The official opening took place on Tuesday 31th October 2017. In attendance was the Governor of the Raparin Province as well as many local luminaries and a large press corps.
The new gallery hosts a photographic exhibition featuring the work of photographer and artist Henrik Brahe documenting the first 5 years of the Expedition’s archaeological work on the Rania Plain. Henrik Brahe is a celebrated Danish artist who has had many international exhibitions. With this wonderful exhibition, DAEI aims to inform and engage the people of the Raparin Governorate with the work of the project and Iraqi heritage.
Please feel free to visit the exhibition. The exhibition is a great way of experiencing the rich archaeological past of the region and will be accessible to members of the general public, school and university students for many years to come.
