As the first local academic research center founded to support scientific research on the history of Anatolia, ANAMED began organizing exhibitions in line with its mission in 2012. In the 10 years since the first ANAMED exhibition, nearly 200,000 people have visited a total of 22 ANAMED exhibitions that have displayed memories, scents, sounds, cartoons, historical documents, photographs, maps, publications, contemporary art adaptations, and much more, all based on and linked to supported academic research. Throughout this decade the ANAMED Gallery hosted parts of several very significant collections, including the Ömer M. Koç Collection (Turkey), David Talbot Rice and David-June Winfield Collection (England), Sapienza University Byzantine Art History Documentation Center Collection (Italy), and Russell Trust Russian Academy of Sciences Collection (Russia), as well as materials from Princeton University’s Department of Art and Archeology (USA), and the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library (USA). Some of these archives and exhibitions had the chance to become Travelling Exhibitions, visiting cities such as London, Ankara, and Antalya.
In addition, keeping up with technologies that change and advance rapidly, several ANAMED exhibitions moved to an online platform to serve as perpetual sources for researchers as Digital Exhibitions, and a few can also be visited virtually, providing opportunities to those unable to visit the original exhibitions (Virtual Tours).
ANAMED’s 23rd exhibition will welcome visitors in 2022, which is the 10th anniversary year of ANAMED Exhibitions.
