Folk toys at the house of Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika

The Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika Gallery opened one-and-a-half years ago and is now holding its first temporary exhibition in a specially-constructed hall on the ground floor, which will host two small-scale exhibitions each year, each with works by artists lined to the Gallery's permanent exhibits.
The first exhibition is a small tribute to the artist who is our host, Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika.
This exhibition focuses on childhood. Known and unknown drawings by the artist will be exhibited an environment that adults will find nostalgic and children will find charming. The drawings focus on folk toys, as well as old games, many of which are no longer used.
Many of these works are being exhibited to the public for the very first time. They are drawn from the collection of the Ghika Gallery and from private collections, while most of the toys are from the Benaki Museum collection of Toys and Childhood; a collection that will shortly be housed in its entirety in the Kouloura residence.
Curator: Konstantinos Papachristou, Ioanna Moraiti
