Islands off the beaten track is the name of a series of archaeological exhibitions being organised by and held at the Museum of Cycladic Art, in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. The exhibitions will focus on the most remote, inaccessible, small and medium-sized islands of the Aegean archipelago. They will include some of the least known regions of Greece in which people have lived and worked, and whose works and culture will be highlighted in separate exhibitions.
The first exhibition starts out in the remotest eastern corner of Greek territory, the islands of Kastellorizo and Rho, and proceeds from there to the sea between Rhodes and Kos, which embraces Symi, Halki, Tilos and Nisyros, islands whose myth and history go back to very ancient times and are largely unknown. The exhibition launched on December 9 and will run until April 23, 2012.
