‘Not only crisis. Greece performs contemporary art’. This is how the newspaper IL TEMPO presented the opening of the exhibition Ellenico Plurale – Paintings from the Sotiris Felios Collection in Rome the exact following day.
‘The other Arcadia’ Foundation presented an exhibition in November 2012, held under the auspices of H.E. the President of Italy, under the patronage of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activity and in cooperation with the Embassy of Greece in Rome, featuring 88 works of art by 25 contemporary Greek painters from the Sotiris Felios Collection at the main hall of Complesso del Vittoriano in Rome.
Paraskinio aims to document and present the exhibition Ellenico Plurale as well as the warm welcome that contemporary Greek painting received by the Italian audience. The majority of the Italian Press embraced this event and the title of the CORRIERE DELLA SERA newspaper article ‘Greece in crisis, except for art’ is indicative of this.
