09.07 - 18.09 1989
Museum of Contemporary Art, Andros
An exhibition dedicated to Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) was presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Andros.
In total, 65 works (water-colours, gouaches and drawings) were presented, having been brought from the Guggenheim Museum of New York, the Musée National d'Art Moderne-Centre Georges Pompidou of Paris, the Lenbachaus Pinakothek of Munich and private collections.
Photographic material from different periods in the life of the artist formed the introduction for the exhibition which was accompanied by a fully illustrated, bilingual catalogue (French, Greek) of the works.
A different aesthetic flavour was given to the Greek cultural summer this year with the works of Kandinsky and Bouzianis which were exhibited in the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation in Andros. […] Kandinsky leaves something of his visions in Andros this year. Although it could have been larger - unfortunately the major part of his works is in Moscow, where it is being exhibited in a superb retrospective exhibition - the feeling the spectator experiences from this exhibition is one of enduring quality. […]
[…] The Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation , within the context of the high standard exhibitions which it mounts every year in its island museum, is attempting a parallel presentation of Greek artists disregarded up till now, together with great and internationally acclaimed art figures. Last year, it was Niki Karagatsi together with Matisse and this year, next to Kandinsky, Bouzianis. […]
The two exhibitions which the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation organised this year in its beautiful Museum of Contemporary Art in Andros are, both in content and in presentation, majestic and monumental. […]
The major fine arts event of the summer is taking place, as it does every year, in the Goulandris Museum of Contemporary Art in Andros: works by Wassily Kandinsky and George Bouzianis. […]
The fine arts event of the year is, for our country, the simultaneous double exhibition of 65 works by Wassily Kandinsky and 53 works by George Bouzianis, to be inaugurated on the 9th July at the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation in Andros. […]
