The Memory of Revolution - Contemporary Greek Artists at ASFA
The exhibition "The Memory of Revolution - Contemporary Greek Artists", co-organized by the Modern Art Museum of Thessaloniki and Athens School of Fine Arts, hosts the versions of symbols, images and main characters of the October Revolution—the messages, the slogans, the spirit, the momentum and it's dynamism, the dimensions of one of the historical events that "shook" the world and defined the history of 20th century by 70 contemporary Greek visual artists.
The exhibition was originally organised and presented at the Modern Art Museum of Thessaloniki in the spring of 2017, where thousands of visitors had the chance to see it. The exhibition is now presented in Athens, enriched by works of even more artists. It is accompanied by reproductions of artworks of the "Kostaki" collection of Modern Art Museum of Thessaloniki that outline the circumstances during the time of the Russian avant-garde. The art of Russian avant-garde is still an inexhaustible source of inspiration, reflection and stimuli for the artists, as it leads to positive historic and cultural associations, implementing exemplary radical artistic and sociopolitical utopias.
