Frissiras Museum - New Horizons of European Painting I

Through the trilogy of exhibitions ‘New Horizon of Painting’, Frissiras museum, presents distinguished artists from its collections, depicts contemporary figurartive trends in painting from all over the world, in an effort to comment on the tangible and intagible notions in the history of painting, its underlying dynamics and its fields of expression in the future. In this , first out of three, part , entitled ‘The Identities of Others’, each artist approaches in their own way, the notion of identity, expressing not only individual, but also collective aspirations. It seems that, without abolishing one’s uniqueness, identity can, through art, function not just as a limitation, but a liberation as well. The exhibition is actualized through the kind donation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Participating Artists: Teodora Axente, Norbert Bisky, Stephen Chambers, Viola Glowacka, Bogumil Ksiazek, Li Ji, Frederique Loutz, Marcin Maciejowski, Florian Merkel, Brann Renaud, Ewa Szczekan, Alexander Tinei, Verebics Agnes, Constantinos Vaviloussakis, Yiannis Ziogas, Christos Michaelides, Ismini Teligioridou.
