Nikos Houliaras : The Back Rooms of the Mind

A Nikos Houliaras retrospective, which gathers together for the first time all aspects of his oeuvre, with an emphasis on his visual arts output.
Nikos Houliaras was born in Ioannina in 1940. His use of an intensely personal expressionist style renders his painting deeply internal introverted, but his renown and reputation has spread worldwide.
However, Nikos Houliara’s career doesn’t only concern his visual arts creations. He is also one of the major poets and literary authors in the modern history of Greece, and his literary works have been translated into other languages.
Furthermore, he is one of the foremost lyricists and composers of the past few decades, as well as an interpreter of most of his songs.

Artists in a dialogue with the Benaki Museum (Andy Holden. The Cookham Erratics)

The programme Artists in a Dialogue with a Museum is a collaboration between the Benaki Museum and the British Council, whose aim is an encounter between four artists from Greece, Cyprus and the United Kingdom.
By inviting artists to create original works in a dialogue with the Benaki Museum, its collections and spaces, the purpose of the programme is to put down the foundations for a process of understanding issues that concern memory, identity and public space.
Four installations/interventions by the invited artists will be presented sequentially from September 2011 to May 2013 at the Piraios Street Annexe and the halls of the permanent collections at the Benaki Museum Main Building. These works will set out issues, which concern the role of the Museum in the representation of history, knowledge and traditions; as well as the usual conditions under which one views a work of art; and the relationship between artistic output and the institutional framework that exists for its arrival.
