EXHIBITION From the Interwar Years to Modernism: Little Scenarios for Athens

14 February - 4 March 2017
Tuesday – Thursday – Friday 10:30 – 21:00 Wednesday – Saturday 10:30 – 15:00
Genesis Gallery, Charitos 35, 106 75 Athens

To celebrate its seventh anniversary, Genesis Gallery in Athens presents a group show dedicated to Athenian architecture and urban style from the first half of the 20th century. Focusing on the years from the interwar period to the rise of Modernism, the exhibition features paintings that isolate and highlight architectural details, landmarks and forms that are characteristic of Athens and its evolution. Just as the city transitioned from the two World Wars to a civil war and then a junta, so did its architecture change to reflect the political situation as well as the architectural styles in fashion abroad. The exhibition is curated by Iris Kritikou, and presents the work of 25 Greek artists.
