This retrospective tribute to Kyriakos Katzourakis covers 50 years of creative work, from 1963 to the present day, and aims to shed light on all aspects of the artist’s creative oeuvre, as well as on his efforts to highlight the links between painting and other arts.
The exhibition includes mainly large-scale oils, drawings, models of stage-set designs; while a specially designed area will be used to show excerpts of his films. A significant place will be taken up by Katzourakis’s monumental piece “Altarpiece – House of Guilt” (1991-1994), where painting, theatre, film and music all coexist, and which acts as a witness to the artist’s links to the past and to history.
All the pieces are from private collections in Greece and abroad.
