Take a sneak peek at the must-see cultural events of the season, taking place at the Art Gallery of Kivotos.
The first solo exhibition at Kivotos Gallery showcases the post-abstract expressionist work of artist Sofia Housou. Housou’s works operate in a dramatic background where colour becomes the vocabulary for her to express and communicate shuttle and complex messages. These paintings subvert our art-historical notions of abstraction and abstract expressionism, while they inextricably and poetically blend reality with imagination, the mysterious with the plain, the flat with the profound.
Aegeanale is an international platform of art and culture created in 2012. Its fundamental goals are to highlight the Aegean, as region of inspiration, creativity, and intercultural dialogue, and to map the archipelago as a complex destination with cultural interest. Aegeanale’s program is structured upon two different focal points:
The principal focus is on a series of international projects from the contemporary art scene that travel in various locations around the Aegean Sea, constructing tourist routes of cultural interest.
The secondary focus is on a visual arts residency program in several islands of the Aegean, transforming the region into a unique “open-air gallery”. The summer of 2013 was selected as the starting point of the first strategic initiative, while the residency program started in Spring-Summer of 2014.
