Opened: 2 April 2017
Closed: 3 September 2017

In our latest major exhibition, Emmanuel Santos and Carol Gordon show us the history, tradition and present-day existence of the Jews of Greece. Through photography and documentary, Santos and Gordon reveal a people dating back to approximately 300-250 BCE, who witnessed, experienced and influenced world history. The exhibition celebrates this ancient community, who despite facing almost total decimation in the Holocaust, have continued to survive.

Works on display also include objects from the Ian Potter Museum of Art Collection and Carol Gordon’s documentary Following Shira’s Journey: A Greek Jewish Odyssey, which was co-directed and edited by Greek Australian Filmmaker, Natalie Cunningham.
