The Ileana Tounta Contemporary Art Center presents “Contemporary Treasures – Part II” a group show with Greek and international artists that are mainly concerned with notions of material culture in an era of constant doubt. The show aims to explore the correlations and contradictions that derive from the juxtaposition of works by artists of different conceptual backgrounds through the usage of various media (painting, installation, photograph).

The participating artists share common arguments regarding the nature of the work of art, the transmission of an idea through an object and the aesthetic value or non-value. The show combines works that blend the past with the future in a new spatial condition. The works either present a fictional situation or they draw up elements from real facts and constitute a comment on the notion of reality.

Participating artists:

Michael Bevilacqua, Savvas Christodoulides, Dora Economou, Maria Georgoula, Dimitris Ioannou, Nikos Kessanlis, Caroline May, Antonis Pittas, Mason Saltarrelli, Dimitris Tsoumplekas, Alexandros Tzannis.
