IAG Cargo to transport museum pieces for Assyria exhibition

IAG Cargo will be the logistics partner for the BP exhibition I am Ashurbanipal: king of the world, king of Assyria at the British Museum.

The carrier will transport a number of important loans from museums across Europe with its secure service for high-value consignments.

The exhibition, open to the public from November 8 to February 24, 2019, marks another chapter in the partnership between IAG Cargo and the British Museum, with the carrier supporting the BP exhibition Indigenous Australia: enduring civilisation in 2015 and South Africa: the art of a nation in 2016.

 The exhibition will immerse visitors in the ancient world of Assyria through the life and legacy of its last great ruler, King Ashurbanipal.

Over 200 objects from all corners of King Ashurbanipal’s empire will be brought together, offering visitors the chance to see objects that have never travelled to the UK before or been on display anywhere for the last 20 years.

The British Museum’s collection of Assyrian treasures will be complemented by loans from around the world, including objects and artworks from; the Museo Gregoriano Etrusco, Musei Vaticani, Vatican City; and the Cyprus Museum, Nicosia.
