The Symbolics of Resistance at Arnados on Tinos
Duration: July 15 - September 15, 2021

Deriving from the broad conceptual framework of “Greece 2021”, The symbolics of resistance: a route from Gyzis to street artists examines how the Greek artistic creation of the last 200 years captured and invested symbolically the resistance to the usurpation of freedom.

From Nikolaos Gyzis’ The Secret School (1886) to conceptual anti-dictatorial art to contemporary street art, the exhibition creates visual juxtapositions to compose micro-narratives that provoke and stimulate collective memory and consciousness offering an immersive route from the present to the past.

Simultaneously, the labyrinthine architecture of Arnados in combination with the strong island wind contribute to the creation of an immersive experience that activates the viewer's senses and intensifies the symbolic power of the works.

The exhibition The symbolics of resistance: a route from Gyzis to street artists presents reproductions of the works of Alexis Akrithakis, Dimitris Alithinos, Manolis Anastasakos, Vlassis Caniaris, Yannis Gaitis, Vaso Katraki, Yannis Psychopedis, Gabriella Simossi, Tassos A., sculptor Theodoros, Costas Tsoclis and Constantin Xenakis.

The exhibition is organised by EuroMare, under the Auspices of “Greece 2021” Committee and Municipality of Tinos, with the support of Ballis Group and Estia Services.
