Exhibitions - I Am Ashurbanipal: King of Assyria, King of the World
DHA worked with Opera Amsterdam to create a dramatic exhibition telling the story of the reign of the Assyrian King Ashurbanipal.
Many of the objects were beautiful, subtle reliefs, and DHA carefully grazed light over these to render the text. Some of the objects were projected onto to tell their story, and DHA worked with Centre Screen to use lighting to compliment their AV.
The exhibition opened in November 2018, with The Times’ Rachel Campbell-Johnson describing it in a 5-star review with “What can you do but gaze astounded. This is a fabulous show”.
