The art exhibition of Cosmas Xenakis was launched at the Benaki Museum on March 19th.
24MEDIA is the exclusive sponsor of the exhibition, while Huffington Post Greece is the main communication sponsor.
Cosmas Xenakis, one of the pioneers of post-war art in Greece, was an artist of multiple talents and interests, making his mark in painting, sculpture, architecture and urban planning. This exhibition is the first major attempt at a comprehensive presentation of his work, to showcase his complex personality, the diversity of his work, and his critical contribution in the regeneration of Greek visual art.
The exhibition is divided in 4 themes and includes paintings and sculptures, photographs of public art pieces, audiovisual clips, stills and artefacts from the Polytechna, as well as material relating to his life and his era and pieces from his private collections.
The exhibition’s visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy the artwork of one of Greece’s most innovative artists until May 10th.
The curator of the exhibition is George Hadjimichalis while assistant curator is Dimitris Xenakis, son of the artist.
