Palimpsest of concepts

May 9, 2018 - Jun 9, 2018

A “twofold”, solo exhibition of visual artist Yannis Stefanakis at the Hellenic American Union and Technohoros Art Gallery…

Painting exhibition of Yannis Stefanakis, May-June 2018

The dual presentation of Yannis Stefanakis’ paintings and engravings is an extended tribute to the work of the well-known Greek visual artist. The collaboration of the two cultural institutions aspires to prompt the viewers to a physical and notional motion between two art spaces, thus highlighting both the protean dimension of the visual artist as well as the inner cohesion of his work.

Stefanakis’ paintings are presented for a month (May 9-June 9) at the Kennedy Gallery of the Hellenic American Union. The opening of the exhibition, which takes place on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, at 20:00, includes a performance by soprano Fani Nalmpanti and guitarist Nikos Manitaras.

The exhibition presenting Stefanakis’ engravings opens at Technohoros Art Gallery on Thursday, May 24, at 20:00 and will last till June 16.

Curator and art historian, Manos Stefanidis, notes in the preface of the exhibitions’ catalog: The versatile work of the artist extends from xylography and monotype to artistic printing-publishing and illustrating poetry, from painting and visual arts to artistic performance and the organization of exhibitions, from writing poetry to authoring political and cultural commentary and engaging in activism, etc. Yannis Stefanakis is an artist because he is a citizen and he is a citizen because he remains a human of sensibilities, concerns and question marks.
