August 6 - 17th, 2018
The United Nations Headquarters, New York City
An IDA exhibition, in association with the UK Permanent Mission to the United Nations, featuring virtual reality experiences, state-of-the-art 3D modelling, and never-before-seen photographs. Showcasing the importance and fragility of cultural heritage through the lens of 200 years of imaging technology, the
exhibition takes as its subjects two vibrant, multicultural cities: the ancient
Syrian city of Palmyra and the city of London.
Through them, we highlight the importance of cultural heritage to our sense of personal and community identity and explore its power to
underline our shared humanity.
