Silent presence: Meeting Zongolopoulos, 45 years later

Nov 22, 2016 - Jan 28, 2017

Group exhibition-tribute to George Zongolopoulos featuring works by contemporary Greek artists in dialogue with selected works by the renowned Greek sculptor…

Work by George Zongolopoulos featured at the Hellenic American Union exhibition

In 1971, George Zongolopoulos presented at the Hellenic American Union galleries his pioneering exhibition “Kinetic Art”, thus starting a new chapter in his artistic career. Today, 45 years later, the Hellenic American Union and Hellenic American College (HAEC), in cooperation with the George Zongolopoulos Foundation, organize an exhibition in tribute to the renowned Greek artist featuring works by contemporary Greek sculptors and painters around a core of original artwork by George Zongolopoulos. Although not entirely adhering to the great sculptor’s artistic idiom, the participating artists demonstrate selective affinities to his work, both in their pursuits and symbols and in the structure and use of materials or even their lines and forms.

Apart from works by George Zongolopoulos, the exhibition also features works by: Υiannis Adamakos, Costas Ananidas, Andreas Arapakis, Lina Bebi, Costis, Rihardos Foskolos, Markos Georgilakis, Giorgos Gyparakis, Giorgos Houliaras, Giorgos Lappas, Spiros Lisgaras, Afrodite Liti, Barbara Mavrakaki, Stella Meletopoulou, Harris Nazlidis, Stelios Panagiotopoulos, Artemis Papadima, Chara Plataki, Stefanos Souvatzoglou, Nana Vetta, Marios Voutsinas and Lena Zevgaridou.

The exhibition is curated by art historian Iris Kritikou.

On Friday, December 9, at 17:00, the curator Iris Kritikou and the Director of the George Zongolopoulos Foundation, Angelos Moretis, will give a guided tour of the exhibition.
