With works spanning more than 2,000 years, Nubia: Treasures of Ancient Africa offers insights into the kingdoms that inhabited what is today the Sudanese Nile Valley. Although frequently overshadowed in the public imagination by its northern neighbor Egypt, ancient Nubia has a long and glorious past. There, a series of civilizations flourished for more than 6,000 years. Nubia’s location made it a strategic link between central and eastern Africa, western Asia, and the Mediterranean, but its history was often misinterpreted. Through a majestic display of art and objects, this exhibition offers new ways of understanding Nubia’s history and contemporary relevance.
