New exhibition: ‘The Curious Case of Çatalhöyük’ at the Brunei Gallery, London

The BIAA has been associated with the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Çatalhöyük since its discovery in 1958, and has been supporting the Çatalhöyük Research Project since its inception in 1993. 

Now, a major exhibition about the Neolithic site is coming to the Brunei Gallery, at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.

The exhibition was developed to mark the 25th season of the Çatalhöyük Research Project. It is organised by Koç University’s Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations with support from the BIAA. 

Çatalhöyük has become renowned not only as one of the most important Neolithic sites in the world, but also as a centre for pioneering archaeological methods and practices. The exhibition presents the Çatalhöyük excavation through various experiment-based display features, including 3D prints of finds, laser-scanned overviews of excavation areas, and immersive digital displays that bring the 9000-year-old settlement back to life. 

The Brunei Gallery hosts an excellent programme of changing contemporary and historical exhibitions from Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The Gallery's aim is to present and promote cultures from these regions and to be a student resource and public facility.

The free exhibition will be open 10.30am - 5pm Tuesday - Saturday, with late night openings until 8pm on Thursdays.
