ATHENS CALENDAR OF EVENTS

Flower Installation by Rebecca Louise Law (through 30 June 2015)

The Onassis Cultural Centre is collaborating for the second year with the Double Decker team of curators to present an installation that showcases the spaces outside the theatres. After the original installation by Sebastien Preschoux with colourful threads “wrapping” the foyer, British artist Rebecca Louise Law transforms the entrance to the Centre with 11,000 flowers and creates an environment that will be on display until next summer. A continually evolving work of art, the installation welcomes and bids farewell to all visitors to the Centre, while reflecting its developing and diverse nature.

Dominikos Theotokopoulos: Before El Greco, (19 November – 31 March)

What kind of environment was Dominikos Theotokopoulos born in? Where did he study and work? How did the Cretan painters work at that time? On the 400th anniversary of the death of El Greco, the exhibition illuminates the social and artistic environment of Crete, the environment that formed the character of Dominikos Theotokopoulos before his departure for Venice.

Landscapes 2010 - 2014 (21 January - 1 March 2015)

Panagiotis Tetsis focuses his gaze on the unimaginably beautiful island of Hydra, presenting a different point of view of the island’s unsurpassed beauty though his sensuous colours. His black and white landscapes in Indian ink allow the surprising sense of the unexpected darkness in life to break through. On 28 February, in the framework of the exhibition, children are guided through the exhibits, participating in special education programmes designed by museum educators and experience a one-of-a-kind night-time adventure, surrounded by valuable works of art from 6.00 pm on Saturday until 10.00 am on Sunday!
