Part of a series of events organized by the National Book Centre of Greece to
celebrate the centenary of the eminent poet and writer Nikos Engonopoulos (1907-
1986), the exhibition presents the surrealist perspective across generations of Greek
art. A group of major works by Engonopoulos face is displayed side by side with
works by later artists, without any attempt, however, to establish stylistic continuity,
unity, school, or style. The following artists have contributed work to the exhibition:
Alexandros Aravanas, Giorgos Gyparakis, Thrafia, Sia Kyriakakos, Ilias Marmaras.
Maria Papadimitriou, Ilias Papailiakis, Giorgos Sapountzis, Angelos Skourtis, Kirillos
Sarris, Stefanos Tsivopoulos, Giorgos Hatzimihalis, Nikos Haralambidis, and Panos
Curated by Denis Zaharapoulos, artistic director of Macedonian Museum of
Contemporary Art with the assistance of Professor Niki Loizidi of the Athens School
of Fine Arts.
