Be there | Art Facing the Ruins

On Wednesday, April 5th, 2017 at 20:00 AD Gallery opens two different exhibitions.The show entitled “Art Facing the Ruins” will be presented on the gallery’s 1st floor. Are there any political works in the contemporary artistic production? Does the doctrine of the “free” artist or intellectual, as someone disconnected from the social struggles, survive and become convincing nowadays because of the defeat of radical theories?Participating artists: Vlassis Caniaris, George Drivas, Steve Gianakos, Steven C. Harvey, Nikos Markou, Dimitris Michalakis, Tassos Pavlopoulos, Anastasis StratakisOn the gallery’s 2nd floor the fourth solo show of Su-Mei Tse in Athens will be presented entitled “A Certain Lightness”.The exhibition is composed of the projection of three different videos taken in front of historical places in Europe. Su-Mei Tse is charmed and inspired by historical references and traces of history. In the movement of a crystal ball manipulated by a juggler, the images of the buildings appear upside-down, creating a contrast between the buildings themselves and the blurred colors and shapes within the floating sphere. By letting the reflection of history dance, this work is a hymn to the past through the present’s breath.

Exhibitions duration: 05.04 - 03.06.2017.
