Art Exhibition “Inside, Outside and beyond” at the Consulate General of Greece in New York

Thursday, 06 June 2019

On June 4th, the Consulate General of Greece in New York had the pleasure of hosting the opening of the art exhibition “Inside, Outside and Beyond,” a group exhibition that explores diverse manifestations of interiority and exteriority in space and time. The event is jointly organized by the 4th Timarete Hellenic Art Festival and the Greek Consulate. It will run through June 28th.

The exhibition includes drawings, paintings, mixed media art, prints, and sculpture in a rich array of materials. It is an attempt to experiment with the concept of ‘interiority’ juxtaposed to ‘exteriority’; an endeavor to map ‘existence’ outside or beyond what is expected or inscribed, prompting the artists’ most urgent questions regarding place and time.

Welcoming the Consulate’s guests, the Consul General of Greece in New York, Konstantinos Koutras commended the contribution of the Hellenic Festival and encouraged all twenty-three participating artists to continue to enrich the arts through international exchanges and become ambassadors of our Modern Greek culture.

The event is held as part of the 4th Timarete Hellenic Art Festival, an annual festival, the purpose of which is to promote Hellenic art and culture, finance relevant educational programs, as well as undertake community service projects. It is organized by the Academy of Hellenic Paideia, a New York-based educational non-profit.

Participating Artists include: Eozen Agopian, Maria Anasazi, Elaine Angelopoulos, Laura Dodson, Angie Drakopoulos, Peter Gerakaris, Cris Gianakos, Morfy Gikas, Mark Hadjipateras, Maria Karametou, Zoe Keramea, Georgia Lale, Eirini Linardaki, Aristides Logothetis, Despo Magoni, Demetrius Manouselis, Jenny Marketou, Eleni Mylonas, Antonia Papatzanaki, Costas Picadas, Panayiotis Terzis, Lydia Venieri, και Adonis Volanakis.
