Athinais Center hosts tribute to de Chirico’s Greece-inspired works

President Karolos Papoulias is to open the exhibition «Giorgio de Chirico and Greece – Journey through Memory» at the Athinais Center on Tuesday, April 17. The exhibition, curated by art critic Takis Mavrotas, who also wrote the catalogue, has been co-organized by the Athinais and by the Giorgio and Isa de Chirico Foundation of Rome, following a decision of the Italian Culture Ministry. The opening will be addressed by Greek Culture Minister Giorgos Voulgarakis. Thirty-five works of art, both paintings and sculptures, strongly inspired by ancient Greece and de Chirico’s personal mythology will be on show. The artist was born in Volos in 1888 and studied first at the Athens National Technical University with Iakovidis, Roilos and Volanakis. The invitation to the opening is from Marilena Mamidaki-Kokkinea and Nasos Kokkineas.
