Less is More
The Hellenic American Union to collaborate with the 11th Naxos Festival...
2011 marks the start of the second decade of the Naxos Festival. “Less is More” is the theme of this year’s festival, which is characterized by streamlined but nonetheless significant events. The main event in this year’s festival is the exhibition “DRAWER XXII, Decomposed Pictures”. The organizers have revisited the Benaki Museum where, with the help of the curators of the Photographic Archive, they retrieved some highly original, intriguing material in the form of “damaged” negatives. These negatives were approached from a fresh perspective and developed into images of intense aesthetic interest. The exhibition is complemented by literary evenings, concerts, theater and seminars.
