The Australian Museum in Sydney will stage an exhibit of Alexander The Great, giving Greek-Australians and lovers of Greek history a chance to see some of the treasures of his world empire. The Australian Diaspora has planned a public meeting on Aug. 24 at the Pan-Macedonian Greek Brotherhood, Alexander The Great, in Marrickville, Sydney.
Expatriate Theodora Mina-Giannioti, who is in charge of public relations and a link to Sydney’s cultural community, will be the main speaker. She invited Greek-Australians to attend the public to help promote the magnificent exhibition.
More than 4,000 objects from the life of Alexander The Great, from the State Hermitage in Russia, will be at display from Nov. 24 until April 29, 2013 in what is one of the biggest exhibitions ever staged in Australia. The exhibition will feature objects, spanning more than 2000 years, many coming to Australia for the first time.
Alexander The Great created one of the largest empires of the ancient world by the time he was only 32 years old just before he died. His accomplishments and influence on culture, religion and military strategy changed the world. Alexander The Great: 2000 years of Treasures celebrates the man, his journey and legacy of one of history’s most enigmatic and important figures through objects and works of art.
