tonight i visited Socratis Socratous exhibition “Socratis Socratous photographs Athens 2000-2010” at Benaki Museum, a very interesting selection of pictures of the last decade, from opening and closing ceremony of Olympic Games 2004 to everyday life moments of Athens.
the different and more interesting deviation of the exhibition was that pictures were printed as posters set on a wall, a basic element of Athens aesthetics, which is actually the inspiration of his work we also saw there designer Eleftheria Arapoglou “Digitaria” together with Simos from Ozon magazine
Filep’s amazing ring by Maria Mastori i love boys in espadrille shoes
this is old news but today i finally managed to see Yannis Tsarouchis 1910-1989 exhibition at Benaki Museum and it was b e a u t i f u l, two floors dedicated to his immense work of life.
The different thing about him is that he wasn’t just a painter but a multifarious intellectual that painted, wrote poems, worked for theater and cinema and contributed to the culture of a century, oscillating between east and west and transforming this blend of cultural elements into art.
you’ve all seen his famous sailors and bicyclists..
..but i half secretly took a shot of this hand-drawn fan that dedicated to actress Katina Paksinou..
..and of this cute little set design model for Debussy’s music composition
To those of you last minute visitors i ‘d suggest to hurry up, the exhibition ends on the 14th of March.
