The Be­naki Mu­seum is ex­tend­ing un­til Septem­ber 25 “Palmyra Re­quiem,” an ex­hi­bi­tion by artist Ale­cos Le­v­idis. The show, at the mu­seum’s Kolon­aki head­quar­ters, is a sen­si­tive com­men­tary on the de­struc­tion of the an­cient re­mains at Palmyra in Syria by the so-called Is­lamic State. Le­v­idis uses the mu­seum’s show­cases to ex­hibit an as­sem­blage of ob­jects that re­flect his own ex­pe­ri­ence of vis­it­ing the an­cient site.
