Until June 30/2016

The Frissiras Museum opens its collections presenting works by 67 European artists in homage to the overlooked value of female art. “What makes painters great is not their gender –their masculinity, femininity or bisexuality: it is their individuality, personal talent and genius,” notes historian and writer Soti Triantafyllou on the exhibition. “Art follows society –or precedes it– in a process of transformation from gender distinction to the utopia of gender-blindness.”

G. Gounaro and the poetic of Symbolism. Painting 1912 – 1976.
Until May 13/2016

“I move within a three-dimensional light. I enclose my painting in a transparent sphere so that the viewer can better sense the cosmogonical origin of the painting essence”. Born in 1890, in Sozopolis, a small town on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, educated in Paris and influenced by two world wars, Yorgos Gounaropoulos (G. Gounaro) is one of the most important representatives of the ’30s generation, assimilating all the movements of symbolism of the beginnings of the 20th century. More than eighty works of his, presented at the B. & M. Theocharakis Foundation for the Fine Arts and Music, reveal the individual style of his artistic course.

Pablo Picasso – Jean Cocteau: Innovators of Modernism
Until February 28
They had known each other for over fifty years. Their fruitfully heretical spirit charted territories that have determined the fate of European culture. The 190 etchings and paintings by Pablo Picasso (from the Kunstmuseum Pablo Picasso Münster) and Jean Cocteau (from the Ioannis Kontaxopoulos Collection) that are presented at the B & M Theocharakis Foundation for the Fine Arts and Music this winter convey the fascinating, deeply influential viewpoints of these two pioneers of modernism.

Mario Merz – Νumbers are prehistoric
Until January 31
The artistic interpretation of Fibonacci’s mathematical sequence (where each succeeding number is the sum of the two preceding ones) according to Mario Merz is presented by the NEON cultural organization in collaboration with the Fondazione Merz at the Museum of Cycladic Art. The motifs of the anti-elitist artist, one of the main representatives of the Arte Povera movement, explore the dynamics of evolution by drawing inspiration from the natural and the human world: numbers have existed since before history and progress to infinity, in line with the evolution of the earth and the universe.
