“Plásmata” | A digital art exhibition
Location: Pedion tou Areos, Athens
Duration: 23/05/2022 – 10/07/2022

Onassis Stegi returns to Pedion tou Areos Park with a new digital art exhibition, “Plásmata: Bodies, Dreams, and Data” that explores the body.

The individual and the collective, the human and the non-human, the planetary, are some of the body versions that occupy the international artists and the 25 works with which they participate in the exhibition, exploring how technologies and technologically constructed worlds shape and affect bodies and identities.

Installations, videos, sculptures, films, lighting and interactive works have been placed in various parts of the park, capturing in the digital world the new creatures and the new identities that emerge in our time.

This year, the exhibition will follow paths that ask us to discover parts of the park that remain largely unknown to the general public. The exhibition starts from the statue of King Constantine and reaches the Theater Alsos and the pine forest that exists above it.

Organic Art. The Avant-Garde in Petrograd
MOMus-Museum of Modern Art, Thessaloniki
Duration: 05/06/2022 – 26/02/2023

Music, literature, architecture, cinema, theater, dance, science and art in Russia during the first three decades of the 20th century are built and developed in a common trajectory, in the context of the inter-artistic aesthetic phenomenon later named by the art historians “Russian Avant-Garde”. There were many artists who during this period fought for a better society through art but in the 1930s art was banned and they were persecuted or isolated.

One of the most important examples of the composition of the arts and the relationship between art and nature can be seen in the Petrograd / Leningrad School of Organic Education. This special mosaic / fermentation and creation framework is captured in the new exhibition of MOMus-Museum of Modern Art – Costakis Collection at Lazariston Monastery, entitled “Organic Art. Avant-Garde in Petrograd”.
