Reprint: Printmaking Exhibition

Dec 15 2017 to Jan 13 2018

For the first time the exhibition will present a selection of engravings from the Museum's collection alongside new works by eight Cypriot printmaking artists. The selected works from the collection features works by both Greek and Cypriot engravers including, A. Tassos and Vaso Katraki, as well as the well-known Greek painter Alexandros Alexandrakis. The Cypriot engravers are Costas Averkiou, Andreas Ladommatos and the well-known engraver, Hambis.

The participating artists invited to create a dialogue with the works of the collection are:

Evelyn Anastasiou composition > movement
Despina Theocharous analysis > detail
Kyriakos Theocharous method > materiality
Charalambos Margaritis mould > integration
Eleni Panagidou relief > memory
Christina Symeou colour > content
Marianna Tsangarou surface > texture
Christos Hadjistylianou concept > translation

Each participating artist proposed two words, presented next to their names above, which reveal the outcome of their work based on the engravings they selected from the collection. The encounter of the exhibiting works conveys the approach of two different generations, that of traditional engraving manifested in the works of the collection and the evolution of the medium today by the participating artists.
