Man Ray, Visages of the Woman
2015 Exhibition Catalogue
Trilingual edition (Greek, English, French)

Catalogue of the exhibition Man Ray, Visages of the Woman held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Andros of the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation from 28 June to 27 September 2015.

The aspiration of the exhibition was to allow, through the selection of one hundred and fifty works by Man Ray, a first glance at his largely paradoxical but also very fertile relationship with the Woman.

The Woman, anonymous or celebrity, successful or unsung, muse or mistress, even the creation of the artist’s imagination is immortalized and elevated into the dominant figure by every means and way throughout his creative course.

The exhibition featured 150 works of all types: photographs, paintings, engravings, drawings, sculptures and ready-mades.

All the works are included in this fully illustrated, trilingual catalogue (Greek, English, French), accompanied by essays by Marie Koutsomallis-Moreau, curator of the exhibition.

Sophia Vari
2014 Exhibition Catalogue
Bilingual edition (Greek, English)

Catalogue of the exhibition Sophia Vari held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Andros of the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation from 29 June to 28 September 2014.

Sophia Vari, an internationally renowned Greek artist with a multicultural artistic education, began her career as a figurative painter, eventually turning to sculpture in the mid-80s where she excelled. Vari remained independent throughout her career, never following any particular school of thought or practice, or joining any art movements, steering clear of established beliefs, and engaging in a bold and passionate quest for models she might be inspired from to create her very personal universe of forms.

Apart from a large and varied sample of her work in sculpture that was the exhibition's main axis, this tribute also included drawings, watercolours, oils, reliefs, and collages, as well as micro-sculptures.

Colour reproductions of all the works are included in this bilingual catalogue (Greek, English), published by SKIRA.

Depicting Transcendence, From Byzantine Tradition to Modern Art
2013 Exhibition Catalogue
Bilingual edition (Greek, English)

Catalogue of the group exhibition Depicting Transcendence, From Βyzantine Tradition to Modern Art held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Andros of the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation from 30 June to 29 September 2013.

In recent and modern times, many distinguished Greek painters made recourse to the iconographic world of this great art, seeking pictorial models and influences, not in order to repeat familiar stereotypes but to merge them with the spirit and stylistic tenets of the artistic currents and movements of the last century. The aim of this homage was to explore these historical, aesthetic and stylistic influences, and to highlight the way in which Modern Greek painters incorporated them in their artistic inquiries, thus succeeding in rekindling interest in this enduring yet aesthetically undervalued iconographic culture.

The exhibition, curated by Dr Nikos Zias, Professor Emeritus of the University of Athens, was structured around works by distinguished painters, who alongside secular painting also created works on religious themes, contributing in this way to the revival of interest in Byzantine art:
Constantinos Parthenis, Photis Kontoglou, Spyros Papaloukas, Spyros Vasileiou, Polykleitos Rengos, Nikos Engonopoulos, Yannis Tsarouchis, Constantinos Artemis, Demetrios Pelekasis,Agenor Asteriadis, Polychronis Lembesis, Demetris Biskinis, Stephanos Almaliotis, Anastasios Loukidis, Nikos Nikolaou, Rallis Kopsidis, and the print-makers Demetrios Galanis, Lykourgos Kogevinas, Efthymios Papadimitriou, Anastasios Alevizos (Tassos), George Sikeliotis, Vasso Katraki.

The exhibition consisted of more than 130 works from state and ecclesiastical museums, churches, foundations and private collections.

Colour reproductions of all these works are included in this well-documented volume, edited by Christos Ph. Margaritis, accompanied by essays by:
- Kyriakos Koutsomallis, Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation
