Modern readings of Greek myths in an exhibition at the SNFCC - Stavros Niarchos Foundation

Modern readings of Greek myths in an exhibition at the SNFCC
22 JULY 2022

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre (SNFCC) welcomes summer by collaborating with ARTWORKS to transform the Dome into a welcoming new terrain—a public meeting place featuring works of contemporary art that propose modern readings of Greek myths in an inventive architectural setting.

The MYTHOLOGIES | NEW TERRAINS exhibition comprises sculptures, installations, and an augmented reality application that explore our complex, age-old relationship with mythology, assessing its current relevance and its potential to push the limits of our imagination. A total of 13 works of contemporary art are juxtaposed with the scale of the Dome in which they are displayed. Mythical figures emerge in a new version of cosmogony, pointing to the sub-terrain, the archaeological past, the technological and digital realms, and science fiction.

Architectural design and construction: SNF ARTWORKS Fellow Eleni Papanastasiou

Featured artists: SNF ARTWORKS Fellows Theodoros Giannakis, Petros Moris, Panos Profitis, and Valinia Svoronou
