In the framework of a series of historical retrospective exhibitions, the National Museum of Contemporary Art presents the first Retrospective of Dimitris Alithinos, curated by Tina Pandi and Stamatis Schizakis.
More than 100 spanning four decades of creation will be on view in the NMCA. These include paintings, drawings, installations, sculptures, films, videos and archival material of the artist’s interventions in public spaces.
Dimitris Alithinos was born in Athens in 1945. He studied painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts and the Accademia di Belle Arti in Rome, as well as architecture in the École Spéciale d’ Architecture in Paris. He is “one of the artists who in the 1960s and 1970s shaped a scene of contemporary Greek art which was searching new expression territories in abolishing boundaries between arts and using the artist’s body as an ultimate means of expression of visual arts” (Mir Festival 2010, catalogue).
