The exhibition is curated by the director of the National Gallery Marina Lambraki-Plaka, the director of archaeological museums, exhibitions and educational programs at the Ministry of Culture, Anastasia Lazaridou, and Louvre President Jean-Luc Martinez. The exhibition is linked to this year’s bicentennial of the Greek Revolution.
