Sophia Vari, an internationally renowned Greek artist with a multicultural art education began her career as a figurative painter, eventually turning to sculpture in the mid-80s where she would excel. Vari remained independent throughout her career, never following any particular school of thought or practice, or joining any art movements, steering clear of established beliefs, and engaging in a bold and passionate quest for models she might be inspired from to create her very personal universe of forms.
Apart from a large and varied sample of her work in sculpture that is to serve as the exhibit's main axis, the proposed tribute to her work will include drawings, watercolors, oils, reliefs, and collages, as well microsculptures.
The exhibition hopes to make manifest the manifold transformations of form and concept that the artist ingeniously invents and gives shape to through her sustained and highly original dialogue with form.
The exhibition's catalogue will be published by SKIRA.
Opening hours: Wednesday-Sunday 11:00-15:00 and 18:00-21:00,
