ΠΡΟΚΑΤ*

Nov 21, 2013 - Dec 17, 2013

Visual arts group exhibition by the “Research group of artists for the first ready-made century”…

Giorgos Tserionis

In 1913, four years before creating his infamous Fountain, Marcel Duchamp presented the "Bicycle Wheel", his first ready-made work of art. Ready-mades essentially challenged conventional notions about visual arts as manual labor and originality of creation were no longer prerequisites for the production of works of art. On the occasion of 100 years since the premiere of "Bicycle Wheel", the “Research group of artists for the first ready-made century” attempts to reexamine the applications and various manifestations of the ready-made in 21st century art.

The “Research group of artists for the first ready-made century” is comprised of: Andreas Vousouras, Apostolos Zerdevas, Irini Karayannopoulou, Babis Karalis, Maria Lianou, Iliodora Margellou, Thanasis Moutsopoulos, Kamilo Nollas, Konstantinos Patsios, Panos Skouloudis, and Giorgos Tserionis.

The visual arts exhibition ΠΡΟΚΑΤ is supplemented by a program of parallel events including lectures, screenings and a dj set.

 *ΠΡΟΚΑΤ = Prokat = Prefab. Abbreviation of Greek word prokataskevasmenos = prefabricate
