A Walk Through Ancient Miletus

A Walk Through Ancient Miletus

Virtual Reality

The city of Miletus on the western coast of Asia Minor, one of the most important cities in Ionia, comes to life again in the Virtual Reality production
“A Walk Through Ancient Miletus”. This production, in the special environment of immersion of “Tholos”, uses some new technical characteristics, which allow the development of multiple directions of digital life in the virtual space and not a predetermined course.

4 September, 2017 to 31 December, 2022
Info: 

Starting again in September, guided tours are offered in Greek & English for groups.
At the Virtual Reality programme there is a tour at the meninsula and the city of Miletus, as it was 2,000 years ago. Visitors can explore the virtual city and learn about the most important public buildings. Starting from the gate at the Port of the Lions, they enter the sanctuary of Apollo Delphinios. Then, they visit the Ionian Stoa, which housed the stores of the city, the Hellenistic Gymnasium, the North Agora and the Bouleuterion, being able to see even the details of the buildings' architecture. They can “fly” over the city for one last panoramic view of the perfect city planning design, or even “dive” into its port.

Virtual reality

"Tholos" Virtual reality theater

Interactive Tour of the Acropolis of Athens
(circa 5th century B.C.)

The new interactive tour at the “Tholos” virtual reality theater
takes visitors back in time…

Visit the dome-shaped Virtual Reality "Theatre" of Hellenic Cosmos and travel through time, in Athens of the 5th century B.C., the so called golden age of Athenian culture under the leadership of Pericles, where you will have the chance to see reconstructed all the temples and statues of the this rich historical site of much archaeological and cultural significance, the Athenian Acropolis.
The show is interactive, controlled by the spectator, and not static. It is a unique experience of immersion into the virtual world, which is characterized by immediate response, flexibility, originality and liveliness.
The spectator takes a tour at the monuments that are still standing today, like the Propylaia, Nike Temple, Parthenon, Erectheion, but also through the buildings that are not visible today like Arrephorion, Sanctuary of Zeus Polieus, Sanctuary of Artemis Brauronia, Chalkotheke e.t.c.
The restoration of the colors on the digital models of Arcropolis created is based on studies, which main source was the descriptions of foreign architects of the 19th century. The accuracy of the historical details is validated by the estimated Archaeology professor of the University of Athens Panos Valavanis. A whole team of experts like painters, 3D modelers, programmers e.t.c. worked on this project which was later adapted to the unique technological infrastructure of the “Tholos” virtual reality theater.
The “Interactive Tour of the Acropolis of Athens” offers a unique opportunity to supplement the traditional experience of the visitor by the introduction of augmented reality components *.

The Good Shepherds. Metropolitans and Chief Rabbis in the Face of the Holocaust

The Good Shepherds. Metropolitans and Chief Rabbis in the Face of the Holocaust

Exhibition

The Jewish Museum of Greece inaugurates its periodic exhibition «The Good Shepherds. Metropolitans and Chief Rabbis in the Face of the Holocaust».

The idea for this exhibition came from Samuel (Makis) Matsas, President of the Jewish Museum of Greece (JMG). A child of the Occupation, who survived thanks to the timely escape of his parents and the generosity of friends and strangers, he asked us to research the conditions under which senior members of the Christian clergy and eminent rabbis decided and acted in various ways to assist persecuted Jews during the years of the Nazi Occupation.
Its purpose is to showcase the positive actions, rescue attempts, gestures of sympathy or support, no matter how large or small, revealed by the JMG research, in order to honour those involved and inspire us today. The exhibition also aims to highlight the importance of individual choice within an extremely complex, suffocating and often contradictory context. These stories are illustrated by original artefacts belonging to some of the senior clerics featured in the exhibition.

29 January, 2019 to 4 October, 2019
Info: 

The exhibition has been realized within the framework of a three-year-long programmatic cooperation between the Museum and the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Athens.
The exhibition will be hosted by the Jewish Museum of Greece from January 23 until October 4, 2019.
Inauguration: Wednesday, January 23, 2019 at 19:30. Open House: 18:00 – 21:00
For more information you may contact the Jewish Museum of Greece at 39 Nikis St., 105 57 Athens, telephone: 210 – 32 25 582, e-mail: info@jewishmuseum.gr – Working hours: Monday – Friday 09:00 – 14:30.

SIGHT | ANTONY GORMLEY ON THE ISLAND OF DELOS
02/05/2019 - 31/10/2019

Archaeological site & museum of Delos island

NEON in collaboration with the Ephorate of Antiquities of Cyclades Present:
Antony Gormley | SIGHT, On the sacred island of Delos
Curated by Iwona Blazwick OBE, Director, Whitechapel Gallery and Elina Kountouri, Director NEON

2 May, 2019 to 31 October, 2019
Info: 

NEON is proud to present SIGHT an unprecedented site-specific exhibition by British artist Antony Gormley, in collaboration with the Ephorate of Antiquities of Cyclades, on the archaeological site and the Museum of Delos Island.

From 2 May to 31 October 2019, Gormley repopulates the island of Delos with iron ’bodyforms’, restoring a human presence and creating a journey of potential encounters. He has installed 29 sculptures made during the last twenty years, including 5 new works specially commissioned by NEON, both at the periphery and integrated amongst Delos’s archaeological sites. SIGHT is curated by Iwona Blazwick OBE, Director, Whitechapel Gallery and Elina Kountouri, Director, NEON.

The works animate the geological and archaeological features of the island: a granite rock in the middle of the Cycladic Islands in the Aegean less than 5 kilometres long and 1.5 kilometres wide, which has a past filled with myths, rituals, religions, politics, multiculturalism and trade. Its intertwined and contrasting identities, as both holy place and commercial town, combined with its topography and geographical location, made the island a singular and cosmopolitan Hellenistic town.

Mythology tells us its first name was «Άδηλος» (A-Delos), meaning ‘the non-visible’ – a floating rock with no fixed location. It became «Δήλος» Delos, ‘the visible’, when Zeus arranged for Leto, his mortal lover, to find refuge there, safe from the wrath of his wife, the goddess Hera. When Leto gave birth to twins Apollo, god of light, and Artemis, goddess of the hunt, the island’s destiny and future prosperity was assured. This unique history is imprinted on Delos’s architecture, sanctuaries and houses, and in the past was animated through rituals that celebrated the gods and protected the island. Later, sanctuaries to foreign deities, including Serapis and Isis, were built here.

Gormley completely reinterprets the function and purpose of sculpture, transforming the traditional statues and totems of the ancient world that once adorned public squares, temples and private dwellings into sites of empathy and imaginative projection. The first connection between visitors and the work is established before they even set foot on Delos. Approaching the rugged northwest coast, they catch sight of a lone figure (from Gormley’s series Another Time, 1999–2013), standing sentinel on a rocky promontory at the water’s edge. Two more works from the same series – also looking towards the distant horizon – stand on Plakes Peak and on Mount Kynthos, and another similar work stands in the waters of the harbour. Further sculptures are integrated with archaeological sites across the island, from the Stadium to the Τheatre district and from the merchant stores to the Museum site.

Visitors to Delos are invited to connect with time, space and nature, which inevitably link to our shared future.

SIGHT is organized and commissioned by NEON and presented in collaboration with the Ephorate of Antiquities of Cyclades.

Exhibition

As part of the series of art exhibitions "Divine Dialogues", the Museum of Cycladic Art organizes this year, from 20 June to 20 October, a major exhibition titled "Picasso and Antiquity. Line and clay". It is a rare exhibition about Picasso’s ceramics and drawings inspired from antiquity and in conversation with Ancient Greek works of art, curated by Professor of archeology N. C. Stampolidis and Olivier Berggruen
The greatest of twentieth-century modern artists is famous for his spectacular paintings but less for his drawings, engravings, and pottery. The combination of these media closely recalls antiquity and has produced works inspired by the Creto-Mycenaean and Greek worlds and the Mediterranean civilizations in general.
The exhibition is organized with the support of FABA - Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso para el Arte, Musée Picasso Antibes, Museo Picasso Malaga and Musée National Picasso – Paris as part of the “Picasso-Mediterranée” project.

20 June, 2019 to 20 October, 2019
Info: 

In the exhibition “Picasso and Antiquity. Line and clay” rare works by Picasso, depicting marine creatures, animals, human figures, mythological scenes, and scenes inspired by ancient tragedy and comedy, converse with ancient artefacts in another unique “Divine Dialogue” at the Museum of Cycladic Art.A whole world is revealed in the Museum of Cycladic Art, a world carried by the artist inside him, a world of antiquities discovered not necessarily in the ancient lands of the Mediterranean but in European museums, in books, and in conversations with Christian Zervos and Jean Cocteau.

The same river twice: contemporary art in Athens

The same river twice: contemporary art in Athens

Exhibition

THE SAME RIVER TWICE: CONTEMPORARY ART IN ATHENS
BENAKI MUSEUM, 138 PIREOS ST. 21.6.2019-22.9.2019
Opening: June 20, 2019
Duration: June 21–September 22, 2019

The DESTE Foundation and New Museum, New York, in collaboration with the Benaki Museum, Athens, are pleased to present The Same River Twice, an exhibition of Athens-based artists. The exhibition, opening at the Benaki Museum 138 Pireos St. in June 2019, will focus on the city of Athens and its constantly evolving artistic landscape, which is host to countless artist-run initiatives and exhibition spaces, cross-disciplinary happenings and collaborations, and a dauntless energy that has enticed many non-Greek artists to relocate and call Athens home. Featuring over thirty artists of all ages and nationalities, working across all mediums, the exhibition will offer a portrait of a city with an artistic dynamism that continues to unfold as artists seek new models for creative output and exchange.

21 June, 2019 to 22 September, 2019
Info: 

The Same River Twice borrows its title from an aphorism attributed to the Greek philosopher Heraclitus, in which he famously asserted that “one cannot step in the same river twice.” The flow of water offered an apt analogy for the state of constant flux Heraclitus sought to describe, and it applies to the continuous transformations of Athens’ art scene today—and the inherent impossibility of capturing or containing it at any given moment. As a city, Athens is in perpetual transformation, and its artists have long found ways to document its shifting landscapes, whether through visual or material studies of the city’s attributes; meditations on its monuments, relics, and cast-offs; or inquiries into the character of its people and public spaces. Metamorphoses are central to many works in the exhibition: mediums defy stability and trace modulations in form, and artistic practices blur the lines between genres or disciplines. The fluidity evoked by Heraclitus’s metaphor offers a way of thinking of identity at a time when the political struggle of those seeking to define their gender or sexuality is both turbulent and vital within Greece, and worldwide. Throughout the works in the exhibition, change and transfiguration are not only constant but embraced, resonating as fundamental to energy and character that shapes Athens and its many artists.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, designed by An Art Service, featuring an essay by the curators as well as texts by Nadja Argyropoulou, Danai Giannoglou, Delia Gonzalez, and Theophilos Tramboulis. Their contributions aim to establish a resource on Athens’s multifaceted art scene—from underground happenings and activist orientations, to the rise of artist-run spaces, and the critical realm of self-published art zines and journals.

The Same River Twice follows the 2016 exhibition The Equilibrists, which was also organized by the New Museum and DESTE Foundation and was conceived in the spirit of the DESTE Prize, an award given to a promising young Greek artist biannually from 1999 to 2015. The exhibition also embodies one of the aims of the Benaki Museum, a historical museum that aims to bridge the past and the present, and aligns with the New Museum’s commitment to exhibiting emerging artists from around the globe, highlighted by its signature Triennial exhibition, which will be held next in 2021.

This exhibition is curated by Margot Norton and Natalie Bell.

The 24th edition of Art Athina will reconvene in the heart of Athens in September 2019. The biggest annual cultural event of Greece, which has reached institutional prominence, will take place between the 13th-16th of September at Zappeion Mansion under the Auspices of H. E. the President of the Hellenic Republic, Mr Prokopios Pavlopoulos.
One of the oldest art fairs in Europe, Art Athina has been active since its establishment by the Panhellenic Art Galleries Association in 1993.

DJANGOFEST Athens 2019
14th & 15th of September 2019
Techopolis City of Athens

A circle completes its journey, reaching this year it's 10th birthday!
Djangofest, the great celebration of gypsy jazz, completes the first 10 years of artistic presence and celebrates in the city center,in the Technopolis Municipality of Athens on 14 and 15 September 2019.

The festival for this year opens its frames to other friendly artistic styles, renewing its program.

Historically, let's mention that festival made its first appearance in May 2010,
on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the birth of D.Reinhardt and continues until today because of its high acceptance by the public.

The festival in these 10 years, has been attended by over 40 bands and more than 300 musicians.There have been numerous seminars and open dance and music lessons. It has hosted fashion shows, dancing groups, djs, children's actions and film and documentary screenings.
And mainly, the significant pioneering exhibition of hand-made musical instruments was established, by Greek luthiers, as in most similar European festivals.

The festival achieved its original goal! This music is now everywhere around us.
On radio, on television, in cinema.
But first of all, it is in the hearts of more and more people.

So this year we will meet together with the colorful Meet Market, to celebrate once again the joy of this music,
in the Technopolis City of Athens on the weekend of 14 & 15 September 2019.
Let's celebrate our first decade together!

Info: 

With a Journey to the New World, The Athens State Orchestra – the most historic orchestral music ensemble in Greece – returns for the third year to the Stavros Niarchos Park’s Great Lawn on Sunday 15 September at 21.00.

This journey takes us through the characteristic melodies of North and South America – a music tradition that remains fascinating in its diversity.

The focus is on three iconic composers of the Americas – the Argentinean tango master Astor Piazzolla and two Americans, the classical and popular music legend George Gershwin and the trailblazer Leonard Bernstein.

Sharing the stage with The Athens State Orchestra, the accordion and bandoneon virtuoso Klaudiusz Baran and his bandoneon will be the perfect guide for this journey; the orchestra will be conducted by distinguished Greek conductor Georgios Vranos.

The program:

Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992)
Adios Nonino, Oblivion, Libertango, Fuga y Misterio

George Gershwin (1898-1937)
An American in Paris

Leonard Bernstein (1918-1990)
Symphonic Dances from West Side Story

Conductor: Georgios Vranos
Soloist: Klaudiusz Baran (bandoneon)
