Contemporary Art Exhibition in Greece Analyzes European Transitional Period



In FluxThe group exhibition “In Flux” will be hosted at “Leonidas Kanellopoulos” Cultural Center in Elefsina, Greece, from September 1 through October 9, bringing together international contemporary artists, whose work addresses and reflects upon the current state of influx in our world.

The show will emphasize on the way artists are involved and respond to the rapid political and social changes, under the guidance of Shoair Mavlian, Assistant Curator at London’s Tate Modern.

The “In Flux” display will mainly focus on Europe and its neighboring countries, which have been lately involved in a dialogue of European interest, revolving around four different themes; the convoluted relationship between East and West, the refugee issue and the immigration crisis, powerful moments of protest and resistance, as well as the construction of national identity.

Specifically, the works of Bouillon Group and Ahmet Öğüt will explore the complex relationship between East and West in relation to whether a country is an EU member or not.

Thomas Mailaender and Henk Wildshchok will deal with the immigration and refugee issues, demonstrating how they are represented in terms of visual arts throughout the European continent.

The works of Emine Gozde Sevim, Émeric Lhuisset, Sergiy Lebedynskyy and Vlad Krasnoshchok will crystallize moments of protest and resistance in major cities during the last few years, while Aikaterini Gegisian will analyze the ways national identities are constructed, as well as how past and present are merged in transitional periods.
