Materials and Techniques: Greek artists who live and work abroad
2011, March 21 – June 10, every Monday – Wednesday – Friday
10:00 – 11:30
An interactive guided tour of the show (with the schoolchildren’s active participation) and a workshop in which the participants can make their own works of art which they can then take home with them.
The OCC is embarking on its visual arts programme in March 2011 with Polyglossia, an exhibition which seeks to foster an artistic dialogue between artists of Greek descent who were born or live and work outside Greece. Featuring every artistic medium from painting, sculpture and photography to sound installations and video, the exhibition seeks to shed light on the convergences and divergences between artists like Chryssa, Steve Antonakos, Pavlos, Takis, Jannis Kounellis and Zoe Keramea, who are from different countries and thus speak different languages and bring different cultural conditions, representations and experiences to the table.
Run in parallel to the exhibition, the “Materials and Techniques: Greek artists who live and work abroad” programme includes an interactive guided tour of the show (with the schoolchildren’s active participation) and a workshop in which the participants can make their own works of art which they can then take home with them. Every instance of the programme is adapted to the age of the children taking part and the dynamic of the group in question, but the common denominator remains the search for—and research of—different materials and techniques.
