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.

Event Details

The Russian Revolution of 1917, one the most important events that changed the flow of history in the 20th century, is the focal point of a digital exhibition which observes the development of visual arts in Russia through the work of trailblazing artists, groups and movements from 1900 until 1923, alongside historical developments. Hosting images mainly from the Kostaki collection of the State Museum of Contemporary Art, the exhibition marks the vision of socio-political change, in combination with the rapid scientific developments and social changes that took place during that period, creating the ideological, philosophical and tangible conditions that led to the explosive phenomenon of the Russian avant-garde in the arts.

Event Details

Art night, the largest visual arts walk of the city, returns. The Municipal Gallery’s event is part of the Dimitria programme this year. Major audience participation last year and demand for participation in all of the walks, caused the extension of Art Night’s duration to three nights this year. On 3, 4 and 5 October visual art in Thessaloniki will stay up late. Art critics, curators and artists will guide you through the contemporary visual art scene. Audiences will have the opportunity to learn about exhibitions, visual arts projects and installations that are being hosted in Thessaloniki museums and art spaces. Planning and materialisation of Art Night was the result of a collaboration between the Municipal Gallery, the Dimitria Festival and the State Museum of Contemporary Art, and the action is being overseen by Thalia-Maria Alexaki, Museologist at the Municipal Gallery of Thessaloniki.

Anyone who wishes to participate in the organised walks must sign up. They can do so every day from 10.00 to 15.00 until Friday 29 September, by calling at 2313 318538, Stavroula Dimitriou in charge of booking.

Alternatively, interested parties can plan their own personal walk, taking into account audience tour times at the museums, if they would like to take a tour. More information is available at the Art Night 2017 Facebook Event Page.

PARTICIPATION IN THE WALKS IS FREE OF CHARGE

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.

[TRACES OF HELLENISM] WORKS BY SOTIRIS CHRISTIDIS FROM THE COLLECTION OF THE MUNICIPAL GALLERY

The work of the popular illustrator, painter and lithographer is presented in an important exhibition at Casa Bianca, organised by the Municipal Gallery. Sotiris Christidis (1858-1940) was born in Thessaloniki, but worked in Athens.

His lithography immortalised heroic moments in modern Greek history through the eyes of an authentic narrator, he moulded allegorical aspects of our ancient Greek and Byzantine past in order to visualise the virtues of our people, aiming to satisfy popular sentiment, and he actively participated in shaping the aesthetics of his time, by recording everyday events from urban life, creating covers for popular printed materials, illustrations for newspapers, sheet music, advertisements, degrees, countless needlework designs and “Genevieves” and Karagiozis shadow puppet theatre figures. The exhibition, curated by Art Historian Thalia Stefanidou, covers the entire spectrum of activities of an artist who mainly worked as a lithographer, conquering popular imagination and expressing his time, and who achieved recognition, albeit delayed, in 1938, through Dimitris Pikionis’ exhibition ‘in the art of Greek tradition’.

Event Details

The great Greek artist Giorgos Lappas, one of the most important European sculptors and professors at the Athens School of Fine Art, a consistent creator, who worked ceaselessly until his death in 2016, in a major exhibition whose title he picked.

The group of works refers to the Arab term ‘maqam’, which means ‘place’ and is used in the musical terminology of the Middle East in order to determine the modal system that describes the musical phenomena.

The exhibition has been curated by Aphrodite Liti, sculptor and Professor of Sculpture at the Athens School of Fine Art, and Denis Zacharopoulos, Art Historian and Critic and Artistic Director of the Gallery, Museums and Collections of the Municipality of Athens. An important homage to the work of a creator that climbed to the peak of Art, creating several individual and group exhibitions in Greece and internationally.
