Alexandra Athanassiades at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Andros
Guided tours conducted by the artist exclusively for B&E Members
The Basil & Elise Goulandris Foundation gives B&E Members the opportunity to attend one of the four, overall, guided tours that will be conducted by Alexandra Athanassiades, at the retrospective exhibition that is on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Andros.
The guided tours will take place on Saturday August 20 and Sunday August 21, 12.30-13.00 and 13.30-14.00.
Covering almost five decades of creation, the retrospective exhibition "Shaping the Intangible", which is not displayed chronologically, gives visitors the opportunity to discover the different aspects of Athanassiades’ artistic journey from the early works of her childhood to the present.
Starting with Athanassiades’ workshop, where she has been working for thirty years, the exhibition continues with the seashores, where she finds most of the materials she uses in her works of art, before revealing an unknown aspect of her work: the fundamental role of abstraction. Following a tribute to Constantine Cavafy, the exhibition makes a natural transition to the world of horses, a key subject in her artistic exploration and ends with a section that represents the cornerstone of Athanassiades’ art: the human body.
