ALMA Gallery proudly presents the group exhibition 21′ of Friends organised and curated by the renowned artist and emeritus professor of the Athens School of Fine Arts, Michalis Manousakis. The gallery will display the work of 9 acknowledged Greek artists.
The exhibition deals with the concept of friendship on the occasion of the national Anniversary of the 200 years from the Greek Revolution. Michalis Manousakis presents the works of his artists- friends intertwined with objects from his personal collection of toys and photographs dating from 1860 to 1890.
These collectible items portray the celebration of the national anniversary of 1821 and include photos from school holidays, dolls of evzones etc. recalling the memory not only of the historical occasion of the Greek Revolution but also of a bygone childhood and of friendship that withstood the test of time..Michalis Manousakis writes:On the one hand the memories of the 200 years from the Greek revolution of our ancestors and on the other my friendships from almost 50 years ago. I wanted to celebrate both with dear friends I grew up with and continue to grow together through painting. (There are many more friends but unfortunately we do not all fit). A small celebration with toys, painting, sculpture, photos and the beauty of friendship, to close the year 2021 with hopes for the best yet to come. On the gallery’s sidewalk, with a glass of wine in hand, everyone fits.Participating friends:Aggelos AntonopoulosYiorgos AvgerosMarilena ZampouraMichalis ManousakisAnastasios MantzavinosTassos MissourasChristos BokorosPanayiotis TanimanidisMarios Spiliopoulos
