New Horizons in painting: The identities of others @ Frissiras Museum
Jan 4 @ 10:00 am – Jun 30 @ 5:00 pm

“Through the trilogy of exhibitions ‘New Horizon of Painting’, Frissiras museum, presents distinguished artists from its collections, depicts contemporary figurartive trends in painting from all over the world, in an effort to comment on the tangible and intangible notions in the history of painting, its underlying dynamics and its fields of expression in the future. In this, first out of three, part , entitled ‘The Identities of Others’, each artist approaches in their own way, the notion of identity, expressing not only individual, but also collective aspirations. It seems that, without abolishing one’s uniqueness, identity can, through art, function not just as a limitation, but a liberation as well. The exhibition is actualized through the kind donation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Participating Artists: Teodora Axente, Norbert Bisky, Stephen Chambers, Viola Glowacka, Bogumil Ksiazek, Li Ji, Frederique Loutz, Marcin Maciejowski, Florian Merkel, Brann Renaud, Ewa Szczekan, Alexander Tinei, Verebics Agnes, Constantinos Vaviloussakis, Yiannis Ziogas, Christos Michaelides, Ismini Teligioridou.” Elli Leventaki refers to the specific art exhibition.

Li Ji[Kunming,Yunnan province,China,1963]exhibits in his work “Untitled”[2002][Oil on canvas][Dimensions:250 x 180cm]a modern figure who holds a pig that obeys to her while it represents also the useful element and the fertility of the figure.The protagonist of the work has in his left shoulder a monkey that symbolizes the imitation and deceit.

Bogumil Ksiazek[Cracow,Poland,1974]in his work “Artist and his model”[2009][Oil on canvas][Dimensions:150 x 140cm]exhibits a faceless artist who washes the leg of his model like Jesus Christ did in the past with his apostles/students,because the teacher of art is being considered as a student simultaneously.All teachers of art,-no matter who they are[ and that’s why the artist is faceless]- always learn different things especially when they are humble.

Frederique Loutz[Sarreguemines,France,1974]exhibits in her work “Untitled”[2008][Oil on wood][Dimensions:150 x 150cm]a figure that leans on a green palette that symbolizes the optimism of art.The white palette that bites the green one symbolizes the competition between different artists.The guitar or the violin in the middle of the work symbolizes the art of music that causes pain to its representative and to the heart of the tree that represents the sensitivity of art.The head of the figure is being united with the white horizon that hides the secrets of the sky.

”The Memory of Revolution”, Contemporary Greek Artists – 100 years after the October Revolution @ State Museum of Contemporary Art
Mar 22 @ 8:00 pm – Jul 22 @ 6:00 pm


Contemporary Greek Artists – 100 years after the October Revolution


The exhibition mainly aims to present the October’s Revolution narrative on the occasion of 100 years, through the eyes of modern Greek artists; they are invited to give their own interpretation of symbols, images, protagonists, messages, slogans, spirit, momentum, dynamism and dimensions of one of the most important historical events that shook the world and determined its course in the 20th century. The exhibition does not intend to replace historical studies, different readings, conflicting interpretations and historians’ valuations. Besides its commemorative character, it focuses on a different point of view based on the concepts of Utopia and Revolution and in direct dialogue with works from the Costakis collection of the State Museum of Contemporary Art. Artists today are still inspired by the Russian Avant-garde as it consists of an inexhaustible source of meditation and stimuli, leading to productive historical and cultural associations, and it implements exemplary radical artistic and socio-political utopias in the most admirable way.


Participating Artists: Michalis Arfaras, Manolis Baboussis, Xenofon Bitsikas, Nikolas Bliatkas, Panos Charalampous, Kostas Christopoulos, Thodoris Chryssikos, Lydia Dambassina, Kornelios Grammenos, Stefanos Kamaris, Dimitris Karlaftopoulos, Antigoni Kavvatha, Theodore Lalos, Ioannis Lassithiotakis, Andreas Lyberatos, Alexandros Maganiotis, Dimitris Merantzas, Antonis Papadopoulos, Aliki Pappa, Konstantinos Patsios, Natassa Poulantza, Yannis Psychopedis, Nikos Sepetzoglou, Yannis Skaltsas, Marios Spiliopoulos, Giorgos Tserionis, Kostas Tsolis, Kostis Velonis, Babis Venetopoulos, Andreas Voussouras, Dimitris Zouroudis. Apart from the artists’ works, the exhibition also includes objects from Vassilis’ Konstantinou collection.


Works of Russian Avant-garde from the Costakis Collection are presented in a different section.

“Back to basics: Text” , group exhibition. @ ENIA GALLERY
Mar 31 @ 8:00 pm – Jul 28 @ 8:00 pm

”Back to basics: Text”

Curator: Artemis Potamianou

Artists: Zavier Ellis, Guerrilla Girls, Joseph Kosuth, Kostas Bassanos, Yoko Ono, Giorgos Papadatos, Nina Papaconstantinou, Artemis Potamianou, Marios Spiliopoulos, Mark Titchner, Alexandros Psychoulis.

The ΕΝΙΑ Gallery presents on Friday, 31 March 2017 the group exhibition “Back to basics: Text”, curated by Artemis Potamianou.

As part of the Back to Basics series of exhibitions on some fundamental themes and elements of the artistic practice, the exhibition Back to Basics: Text aims to explore the objectives behind the artists’ visual use of text and the methods of approaching it.

The written word has been part of visual art since the beginning of art history. Excerpts from texts have been used in artworks in Ancient Greece, Byzantium and the Renaissance, but always in a secondary, auxiliary, supplementary role as aids to resolving potentially unclear points. In these pieces the written word is never a visual work in itself.

Naturally, the exhibition Back to Basics: Text is not able – and does not aspire – to present all aspects of the use of the written word in the history of visual art. The quest is to establish a dialogue among the works of the participants and pose questions about the purpose of introducing text into the production of artworks and its role in them.

”Antiquidia” , Dialogues with antiquity. @ gallery
Apr 4 @ 7:00 pm – Jul 15 @ 4:00 pm


Dialogues with antiquity

On the occasion of the great feast happening in Athens due to documenta 14, gallery opens the exhibition ‘Antiquidia’ on Tuesday, 4 April 2017, 7:00-10:00 p.m.

It’s an exhibition where the artists are invited to be inspired by an artwork of antiquity and express their own contemporary proposal.

The presence of contemporary Greek artworks alongside the country’s revered ancient monuments makes the artists aware of their living relationship to their history. Undoubtedly, the claim of a country to a cultural identity that is connected to its past is valid to the extent that its society, its artists’ creativity and its art in general, demonstrate a capacity to change the coordinates of this relationship by extending the interpretation of history.

The gallery exhibition “Antiquidia”, through the 13 artists’ works, seeks to convey to the public the energy that emanates from a creative approach to history. Delving deeply into history and time like inspired archeologists, the artists rejoin fragments of memory trying to transfer the philosophy of the past into modern reality. In doing so, they had to rid themselves of any inhibitions and fears that by doing so they could be considered as mere reproducers of a fruitless and obsessive adherence to the Greek ancient heritage.

The exhibition poses the questions, through the attestation of the work of art, one of the most interesting chapters of the discourse between the old and the new; between the contemporary Greek creation and the weighty legacy of our ancient history.

Christos Athanassiadis

Mark Hadjipateras

Demi Kaia

“Seeking Voices” // Dimitris Lambrou @ Free Thinking Zone
Apr 6 @ 7:00 pm – Jul 31 @ 8:00 pm

Seeking Voices

Dimitris Lambrou / Individual Exhibition


Activist/bookshop Free Thinking Zone, yet again providing young Greek creators with a stepping stone, is proud to host the solo exhibition of Dimitris Lambrou, a great, young Greek visual artist, entitled “Seeking Voices”.

Efthimis Lazongas , curator of the exhibition, (Sorbonne University –Paris I –Pantheon, History of Art Professor at ASFA, Master’s in Visual Arts, curator) notes:

“What possibly could such personalities as Pasolini, Kounelis, Pound, Tarkovsky, Axelos, Foucault, Angelopoulos, Simone de Beauvoir, Emma Goldman, Rosa Luxemburg, Baudelaire, Godard, Beckett, Fellini be doing in Athens? Twenty or more “apostles” of art, cinema, and literature meet up through the remarkable “penmanship” of visual artist, Dimitris Lambrou, who “iconizes” and revives the vanguard of global intellect (in modern times), so that they stand as lighthouses against the darkness of the structural crisis experienced today, at an intellectual, cultural and economic level. It is not at any gallery or art hall that they meet, rather at a select meeting venue for contemporary thought and art, an open conversation field, a place where young artists can take the floor.

Dimitris Karatzas, MET graduate, ASFA graduate, Film Direction at Stavrakos’ School graduate, also notes:

“It is no accident that just before the advent of the first photograph in 1826 by Niepce, David paints his greatest masterpiece “The Death of Marat” (1793), at a time when the portrait, at least in Western Art, has come to feature the hero at his peak moment of victory, that of his death.

It is at this time when photography appears. Photography use has played a double role to this day, namely to state the condemnation of the “aura” on the one hand while transforming the mundane on the other.

As the flagship of urban actualization photography seems to have reconciled several contradictions within itself.

It stood as the magic potion playing a major role in the healing of the wound left, symbolically at least, by a hero with his eyes closed, dying because of his ideals in a mundane scene in his bathtub.

As a visual artist, drawing from the photograph means revisiting that wound which was once healed, reopening it and reading it incessantly.

Such a process becomes even more personal when this is done using drawings as a vehicle, as, even though we may have a minute satellite picture at our disposal, most of the time it takes a simple drawing line on a map for us to find our way.

Drawing from a photograph means cutting up the wound and re-stitching it using your own stitches. This is the main concern underlying Dimitris Lambrou’s work.

Dimitris Lambrou : a brief presentation

He studied at ASFA (Art School Of Athens) from 2004 to 2010, under Professor George Lazongas. Later he completed a Master’s degree at ASFA (2011-2013) with honours.

In 2011 he participates in a European and Mediterranean Biennale entitled” Symbiosis, Rome/ Italy, Thessaloniki/Gr.

In 2013 he takes part independently with a solo presentation of his work in the International Modern Art Venue “Remap 4”, entitled “Story as a Dream / Athens/ Metaxourgeio/ Gr.

2013 also finds him exhibiting together with Vlassis Kaniaris at a historical exhibition in the Lola Nikolaou Gallery, entitled “1+3”.

In 2014 he co-exhibits with his Professor George Lazongas at the Lola Nikolaou Gallery, with the title “Two Generations / Three writings”.

He established the Lustspiel group, which participated in several art happenings in Art Athens in 2013 and 2014.

He has also set up the Dipoles group, together with art scholar and curator Efthimis Lazongas, whose work led to an exhibition entitled Dipoles, at the Art Gallery of Athens.

He has taken part in the “Manipulation” exhibition at the Depo Darm Gallery, and has also taken part in several Art Athens happenings either individually or as a member of a group.

In 2016 he participated in Back to Athens 4, an international modern art venue.

He is currently co-curating with Efthimis Lazongas (art Scholar, Member of Faculty of the ASFA post-graduate programme) a great meeting of young and significant older artists on the subject of “Secret”, which is to take place at the end of 2017.

THREAD @ Kalfayan Galleries
May 11 @ 11:00 am – Jun 24 @ 3:00 pm


Kalfayan Galleries (11 Haritos Street, Kolonaki, Athens) present the group exhibition titled ‘THREAD’, curated by Areti Leopoulou.

Works by: Vartan Avakian, Bill Balaskas, Ioannis Faitakis, Niki Kanagini, Maria Loizidou, Elias Mamaliogkas, Silvina Der Meguerditchian, Alex Mylona, Nina Papakonstantinou, Nausica Pastra, Retrovi, Efi Spyrou, Maria Tsagkari.

A thread has the ability to connect and hold together other objects; it is located always “somewhere in between” as a binder and it doesn’t seem to have an independent entity. Functioning as a literal and metaphorical bridge, it may simultaneously consolidate, yet also separate. Whether the thread is approached as an object of knitting or as an allegorical reference in life and in psychoanalysis (e.g. the “life thread”, or the “Ariadne’s Thread” -the mythological abolition of the human sacrifice custom in the ancient world), it is undoubtedly a term that is present to numerous situations of life over time, but customary used in the frame of weaving, knitting and embroidery. Mathematics also find meaning through threadsi; people look at their lives on the edge of the thread; even computer programming is based on the thread as a process. Furthermore, if viewed as the product of an industry that has supported tremendously the Greek economy, during the 20th century, then one easily perceives that it does carry a memory with countless cultural and social aspects.

The scenario of this exhibition is based on the above thoughts and its aim is to meet a variety of thread management cases: all projects are clear attempts to use the thread as a bridge structure for visual and conceptual research, by both anonymous craftsmen of previous centuries, by tapestry experts of the 60s and 70s, as well as young contemporary artists, following different applied appropriations and conceptual interpretations of thread’s multiple significance and history.

Thus in this show there are presented textiles of the 19th century Greek tradition by anonymous craftsmen, along with modernist approaches of weaving (pile-woven textiles, namely “tapisseries”) by artists of the ‘60s – ‘70s Greek avant-garde (Niki Kanagini, Ioannis Faitakis, Alex Mylona) who attempted to adapt the paintings’ qualities and the style of abstract expressionism on the decorative surface of tapestries; preparatory drawings of grids, based on the research of mathematical sequences (Nausica Pastra); grids by unexpected organic or inorganic materials (Vartan Avakian, Efi Spyrou); stories of the modern mass media calling on us, in order to connect the threads of various sociopolitical events (Elias Mamaliogkas, Bill Balaskas); drawings with traces on the paper surface in a kind of allegorical weaving narrative (Nina Papaconstantinou); odd, yet magic carpets of historical memory (Der-Meguerditchian); gestures that sometimes define presence or absence of meaning in a space (Maria Loizidou, Maria Tsagkari); even fashion design re-using crafts traditions (Retrovi).

Opening Hours:

Opening: Thursday, 11 May 2017, 19:00 – 21:00.

ATHENS IS NOW @ Sarri 12
May 11 @ 7:00 pm – Jul 15 @ 9:00 pm

Is Athens’ turn now?

Art Director of Documenta Dam Szymczyk, in an interview with a German radio station on April 7th, 2017, reported: “Sure, one could blame us for not including the local art scene in Athens  enough. We did not care much about this but more of the city as a living organism. This goes beyond the contemporary art scene. Athens is not standing alone; it stands for other parts of the world. Lagos, Guatemala City. We also feel responsibility towards these places. The expectation of linking ourselves to the artistic scene of Athens will be very limited in this document. If one feels betrayed by this, they should know: our exhibition never intended to represent the art scene of Athens. Others have to do this. If some feel that they are not sufficiently represented, they should devote a little thought to this, on what they can make themselves to be heard more.” And maybe he is right, we have to stand on our feet and not wait for the Barbarians to save us and to represent us. That’s why we are doing this group exhibition at the “Sarri 12” Gallery.

Artists: Iakovos Volkhov (NAR), Grigoris Lagos, Alexandros Maganiotis, Jason Cocao Rocks, Achilles Michaelides (Paparazzi), Manos Tsichlis.

BRIGITTE POLEMIS #iFollow @ The Bouzianis Museum
May 16 @ 8:00 pm – Jul 16 @ 7:00 pm

Opening:  Tuesday May 16th, 20:00 pm

Exhibition dates:  16 May – 16 July 2017

The Bouzianis Museum, in an opening to contemporary art and in dialogue with the Documenta 14,                      is pleased to invite you the exhibition of Brigitte Polemis. The show will be held in the great Greek expressionist George Bouziani’s studio and Museum as a retrospective of old and new works by Polemis, as well as video animations and sculptures. In parallel, as a historical artistic reference, there will be exhibited installations by the renowned Greek artist Yannis Gaitis.

Despite the fact that Brigitte started her career as an artist by using oil on canvas, in order to evolve her craftsmanship she decided to use digital painting on photograph and Plexiglas printing.  Throughout these practices, Polemis transfuses depth to her artwork, in multiple layers (3D).

The main body of Polemi’s work focuses on the self-immersion of humanity in social media and technology. Therefore she chose to entitle her exhibition #iFollow. The lack of identity and ideals, the now common state of passiveness and loneliness of the young humans of the Western world, exhorted her to paint juvenile, faceless figures. Assimilation, which is not a result of critical processing but a submission to world order, urged her to ‘’dress’’ all her impersonal figures with suits. Combining all the above with her distinctive technique and pop art aesthetics, Polemis work becomes purely contemporary and up-to-date.  The diversity of its materials (silicone, resin, Plexiglas) gives additional conceptual value to its thematic axis: industrialized, mass made, materialistic constructions.

Brigitte Polemis was born in Damascus, Syria and in her later teens she moved to Greece. She graduated from the Chelsea School of Art and her artworks have been presented internationally (2015 – Albermarle Gallery, London, UK – 2015 – Blender Gallery Affordable Art Fair, London, UK – 2014 – Vanessa Quang Gallery, Paris France – 2013 – FAF GALLERY – THE HENRY CLAY Louisville, Kentucky USA,  etc.)

The show will have as partner the public benefit Foundation THEOTOKOS, which provides special education and treatment services for preschool children and adolescents with developmental immaturity, cognitive developmental disorders and autism spectrum disorders. Furthermore, THEOTOKOS provides vocational training and job rehabilitation to young adults and both supports and intervenes in their family when it’s necessary. Throughout 52 years of its service, THEOTOKOS has served and supported more than 5,000 people. Nowadays, there are 370 children and young people under its wing, 60 of who are destitute or uninsured.

Elliot Hundley “Movement V” @ BERNIER/ELIADES GALLERY
May 18 @ 10:30 am – Jul 12 @ 4:00 pm


Movement V

Bernier-Eliades is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by the Los Angeles-based artist Elliott Hundley, on Thursday May 18, from 20:00 to 22:00. The artist will be present at the opening.

Elliott Hundley is known for his dazzling multimedia compositions that reference both art history and mythology. His work brings together scenes from the past with recognizable imagery taken from the contemporary world. The artist creates complex and mesmerizing works, incorporating a spectrum of varied materials, employing content-rich resources that are psychologically intense to form a kind of decentralized cultural map.

Whereas his earlier bodies of work have focused on classical Greek tales such as Euripides’s tragedy The Bacchae, this exhibition is moving from antiquity to the modern, based on the artist’s historical research on theatre, literature and film, loosely referencing Antonin Artaud’s plays. On view will be a series of billboard collages forming an ongoing visual narrative.

Hundley builds up the layered and labored surface of his works using paint, magazine cutouts, fabric, straight pins, found objects and other materials sourced from his extensive archive.

With complex accumulations of imagery and painted gestures adjoining three-dimensional elements  protruding from the surface, his vibrant works are vivid and playful.

One can’t even trace the surface of these works, producing perceptual effects. These brimming, insidious canvases impose a state of disquiet and hint of hidden violence with depictions of internal organs, crowds, ants and animals.

Despite their elaborate rendering, Hundley’s compositions keep a delicate balance between abstraction and representation. They defy time and gravity, shivering and vibrating with their own cosmic energy.  These billboard collages are existing for their own sake, swirling over a sense of chaos and resisting attempts at deciphering. Each one represents a different state of anxiety and echoing the moment of an imminent disaster.

May 18 – July 12, 2017

Gallery is open Tuesday-Friday 10:30-18:30. Saturday 12:00-16:00.

Encounters I May or May Not Have Had with Peter Berlin @ Vamiali’s gallery
May 19 @ 8:00 pm – Jul 29 @ 6:00 pm

Encounters I May or May Not Have Had with Peter Berlin
Mariah Garnett, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Neal Tait. Curated by Caroline May 

Vamiali’s gallery presents the exhibition “Encounters I May or May Not Have Had with Peter Berlin”, curated by Caroline May. The exhibition borrows its title from Mariah Garnett’s homonymous work and refers to “Peter Berlin” as a concept and as a metaphor to illuminate the notion of desire, highlighting the impulse to “meet with our heroes”. Through these encounters, as real or imaginary, intellectual or deeply personal as they may be, our sense of identity is reshaped and consequently, the process of art making is recharged, re-positioned and re-defined. Peter Berlin is a photographer, artist, model and filmmaker. Serving as his own photographer, model and fashion designer, Berlin redefined self-portraiture and became an international sensation.

Mariah Garnett’s film highlights the artist’s desire for the extravagant gay icon and mystifies the 70s as a decade of sexual liberation. Partly documentary, partly biopic, the film features the artist herself re-enacting Berlin’s erotic persona. As Garnett inhabits the filmmaker’s signature manner of style and dress, she presents a film that galvanizes the kind of gender misidentification that is a consistent point of interest throughout her practice. Garnett’s other film in the show, Other & Father, is a re-enactment of footage that narrates the relationship of her Northern Irish Protestant father and his Catholic girlfriend, aired by BBC in 1971. The original broadcast, which was riddled with half-truths to suit the BBC agenda, led to death threats and his eventual flight from his home. Garnett re-enacts the documentary, starring herself and a trans-woman shifting focus from the ethnic/religious tensions to sexual politics and gender dynamics. Through her deeply personal lens she mediates her own subjectivity as well as that of her chosen medium, which systematizes definitions of identity. The process of filmmaking, the de-mystification and re-mystification of the process, the negotiation of actor/performer and filmmaker are integral to Garnett’s project.

Similarly, Paul Mpagi Sepuya studies how photography (mis)represents or dissects his own identity and exposes the mechanisms of picture making. He documents his subjects in a formal studio setting, at the same time deconstructing and mystifying the process of photography and the relationship between model and photographer. His intimate portraits follow a long tradition of photographers such as Lyle Ashton Harris, Peter Hujar and Rotimi Fani-Kayode. The dignity with which he arms his subjects, black and white men, led the writer and critic Hilton Als to include Sepuya in his 2016 exhibition on James Baldwin, poetically situating him as one of Baldwin’s creative “children”. Speaking about his work, Sepuya claims: “every photograph contains within it the instances of what preceded it. In thinking of photography this way, I am able to bring together and embrace the contradictions that photographic production generates: in its accelerated gratification of desire and simultaneous displacement of its subjects by the resulting image-objects. It allows me to hold, within the studio, all material as potential. Each enters into the frame of another within a chain of production, revision, destruction and re-production”.

This accentuation of desire is central in Neal Tait’s work. His intellectual encounters with his heroes, like Leger and Guston, are prevalent in his works. Using found imagery he starts a painting without having a pre-conceived idea of how it will end. In this sense the painting process is the subject of his work. His identity as a painter is in a constant flux during this process: both doubting and asserting himself in his attempt to capture the essence of desire, employing a dark, unruly and idiosyncratic vocabulary, which poses open-ended questions which alert the viewer.
With the kind support of Arctos Films.
