Canvas is delighted to partner with Auckland Museum for their highly anticipated international exhibition – Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes.

The exhibition, which opens on Friday 10 June exclusively at the Tāmaki Paenga Hira – Auckland War Memorial Museum, is the largest selection of classical world artefacts ever on loan from the British Museum to Aotearoa, curated from the extensive collections of Ancient Greek Culture from the British Museum. It will showcase a wide range of treasures and stories and showcase a selection of iconic sculptures, including a frieze from the Mausoleum of Halicarnassos, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
