It is the largest exhibition of its kind showing both ancient and mod- ern Olympic Games and narrating the history of the Olympics in ancient Greece and their re-establish- ment in modern times. The host and organiser of this important event is the Qatar Olympic & Sports Museum (QOSM) in collabo- ration with the Hellenic Authorities , and in partner- ship with ExxonMobil Qatar. In his greeting speech Mr. Konstantinos Tzavaras, the Greek Minister of Culture, mentioned among others, that “…Olympia, to this day, continues to be the matrix of the historical ideals of sportsman- ship, friendship, solidarity and peace…” and he added that “…the ideal of “Agon”, remains a source of inspiration and excitement for humanity..” At the first part of the exhibition, visitors are able to admire more than 800 ancient artifacts, origi- nating most of them from the Museum of Ancient Olympia. It is important to mention that, for the first time more than 200 exhibits found during the recent excavations in the site of Olympia are presented to the public. Also, other Museums such as the National Archaeological Museum and the Numismatic Museum in Athens, the museums of Dresden, Munich, Berlin, Rome and the Vatican have send to Qatar some of their fine items related to the topic of the exhibition. With these carefully selected ancient treasures (statues, vases, and bronzes depicting athletes and athletic activities as well as models of Olympia), the curators of the exhibition will guide the visitors to the sanctuary of Olympia, and explain its role in ancient Greece. Children, young people and adults who will pass the gates of Al Riwaq Exhibition Center, will find out more about the Greek culture and the festivals held in Olympia and they will discover the program of the ancient Games. Previously, from August 31st, 2012 until January 7th, 2013, the majority of these ancient works of art were successfully presented in an exhibition by the title “Olympia: Myth, Cult and Games” in Martin Gropius Museum in Berlin. The second part of the exhibition in Qatar, entitled: “Olympics: Values – Competitions – Mega Events” is dedicated to the contemporary era. Through a comprehensive display of all the torches, posters, mascots, medals, programs and tickets from the last 48 Winter and Summer Olympic Games, this section of the exhibition, “…illustrates the values and rituals of the Olympics, promoting peace and personal achievements, as well as the broader context of this Mega Event and its interrelationship with politics, environment, economics, social issues and doping..” . Dr. Christian Wacker, Director of the Qatar Olympic & Sports Museum, made sure a special section on Qatar’s participation in the world-class event to be included. The exhibition will be on display until June 30, 2013. During these three months, gallery lectures, a theatre performance, a film festival as well as a family fun day will complement the exhibition.
