For the curator Franck Goddio setting up an exhibition is the logical extension and the natural successful outcome of his work as an underwater archaeologist and excavation director. In the past, Franck Goddio has curated several great exhibitions, such as:
“Egypt’s Sunken Treasures”:
Over 500 items discovered during underwater excavations in Egypt illustrated more than 1500 years of history, particularly the Ptolemaic period. It was shown in Berlin, Paris, Bonn, Madrid, Turin and Yokohama-
“Cleopatra, the Search for the last Queen of Egypt”:
A logical extension of the “Submerged Treasures of Egypt”, this exhibition presented 142 objects. A collaboration with National Geographic and Arts & Exhibitions International, the exhibition toured the United States, in Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Milwaukee and Los Angeles.
Other exhibitions curated by Franck Goddio include “On a retrouvé le trésor du San Diego” (The Treasure of the San Diego Rediscovered) in the Great Hall of the Centre of Science and Technology in Paris, and “Weisses Gold”, the white gold of Chinese porcelain exhibition in Frankfurt and Hamburg.
