Event Details

As they have done in the past and according to centuries of practice, so it is nowadays that many Christians, Muslims, and Jews pray at sacred sites that belong to other religions. What are their interactions and in what ways do they leave a trail behind them? The existence of common sacred sites is a phenomenon with deep roots in the Mediterranean, which reveals the permeability of the borders between religious communities.

The three-part exhibition ‘Shared Sacred Sites’ explores the similarities and contrasts, the reciprocities and conflict of the various forms of faith that have been carried out in a ‘shared sacred site’, the world of the Mediterranean. A charming record, a multi-faceted exhibition that spreads throughout various cultural spaces of Thessaloniki, in order to correlate art with theology and anthropological research.

MULTI-THEMED FESTIVAL

The festival that believes in young people and is charmed by their aesthetic codes. The fact that this is the twelfth consecutive year this event is being held is indicative of the affection with which the Thessaloniki audience has embraced the great celebration of skateboarding, the arts, sports, and urban culture. More than 1000 works by Greek and foreign artists have been presented during the 7Ply Project, while the festival has hosted numerous skateboard competitions and shows, skateboard lessons, meetings and workshops, guided by contemporary art, street dance, screenings, graffiti on walls and specially designed surfaces, concerts and DJ sets, all kinds of events focused on street culture and the interests of young audiences. Keeping skateboarding at the visual and athletic core of its themes, this year’s 7Ply Project presents a group exhibition at the French Institute of Thessaloniki, in the framework of which artists are invited to transform boards, each using their own perspective and technique, with absolute aesthetic freedom. The resulting object is a completely reborn board, defined by the visual rules set by the artist themselves.

Event Details

BY CHRISTOFOROS ANTONIADIS

Based on the book by Nikos Stathoulis ‘Alexandros Iolas’, the anniversary edition theatrical performance ‘ALEXANDROS IOLAS’ that marks 30 years since the death of the great patron of the arts, will attempt to take its viewers on a journey through the surreal life of a man who lived like the hero of a fairytale and died like the hero of an ancient tragedy.

Christoforos Antoniadis has written, directed and selected the music for the play, while he stars as Alexandros Iolas. The performance spans his entire life, from his childhood in Alexandria to the last dramatic moments of a man who knew all the major artists of his time, experienced art and love greedily, but, alas, died alone: “Even the statues have left”.
