Exhibitions – Painting is poetry (creation) that is silent


Art Group Painting Exhibition
Painting is poetry (creation) that is silent…

Exhibition Duration:
1 December – 23 December 2017

For the first time Blank Wall Gallery, will host in its art space the Art group painting exhibition “Painting is poetry (creation) that is silent…” – «Την μεν ζωγραφίαν ποίησιν σιωπώσαν…», in which 43 modern Greek painters participate, from 1st till 23rd of December. The exhibition is curated by the art historians Evaggelia Kairaki and Maria Moscha Karatzoglou, whereas the responsibility for the concept, the management and the communication of the exhibition is on Dimitris Lazarou.
The title of the exhibition is an excerpt from the well-known anthology of ancient Greek lyricist Simonidis of Kea, “Painting is poetry (creation) that is silent and Poetry (creation) is painting that is speaking” – «Την μεν ζωγραφίαν ποίησιν σιωπώσαν, την δε ποίησιν ζωγραφίαν λαλούσαν». This title was chosen, because Blank Wall Gallery will host in its art space an Art Painting exhibition for the first time. According to the ancient saying, painting is a poetry (creation) that is silent, meaning that the observer of the painting receives the message of the act based on its own individual criteria, his personal experience and knowledge. For this reason, all the art works will be untitled, allowing the visitors to observe, draw their own conclusions and leave their feelings free without being bound from the titles.
