“A dozen or so Nubian fabrics, the oldest from almost 2,000 years old, will be on temporary exhibition at the Sudanese National Museum in Khartoum. “These types of monuments are very rare and rarely end up in museum exhibitions” – says the curator, Dr. Magdalena Wo┼║niak from the Polish Academy of Sciences.
The exhibition “Forgotten textile treasures in the collection of the Sudan National Museum” will start on Thursday (October 24) and will last until March 2020. The exhibition is organized thanks to the funds of the National Science Center of Poland. As part of the NCN – Polonez grant – some of the fabrics presented at the exhibition have undergone conservation in Poland.
