Palimpsest of Concepts: Exhibition by Yannis Stefanakis at the Hellenic American Union and Technohoros Art Galleries (May 9 - June 9, 2018)
An exhibition of paintings by Yiannis Stefanakis will be held at the Kennedy Gallery of the Hellenic American Union, 22 Massalias Street, Athens from May 9 to June 9. The opening of the exhibition, which will take place on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at 20:00, includes a performance by soprano Fani Nalmpanti and guitarist Nikos Manitaras.
An exhibition presenting Stefanakis’ engravings opens at Technohoros Art Gallery on Thursday, May 24, at 20:00 and will last till June 16.
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 move both physically and notionally motion between two art spaces, thus highlighting the protean dimension of the visual artist as well as the inner cohesion of his work.
Curator and art historian, Manos Stefanidis, notes in the preface of the exhibitions’ catalog: The versatile work of the artist ranges from xylography and monotype to artistic printing-publishing and illustrating poetry, from painting and the visual arts to performance and exhibitions, from poetry to political and cultural commentary and activism. Yannis Stefanakis is an artist because he is a citizen and he is a citizen because he remains a human being with sensibilities, concerns and questions.
