“Beauty is the Method” Opens at Deree

The Frances Rich School of Fine and Performing Arts at Deree – The American College of Greece is pleased to present Beauty is the Method, a group exhibition curated by Sotirios Bahtsetzis at the ACG Art Gallery, which commences the Deree Arts Festival this year.

March 13 – April 30, 2015, on view at the ACG Art Gallery, there will be works by artists who explore the “beauty” of abstraction. The exhibition presents selected works from the ACG Art Collection, in juxtaposition to contemporary artistic perspectives.

An essential part of the exhibition is a series of lecture performances held in the gallery space. Artists and theoreticians have been invited to critically expound on the curatorial proposal, while commenting on an exhibited work of their choice. The focus is on innovative content and experimental delivery. Both the works and the lecture-performances become the medium for investigating the production and sharing of knowledge. Lecture performances will be held on March 18, and April 1, 3, 22, 24, and 29.

The exhibition is curated by Sotirios Bahtsetzis, and presents works by: 

Nikos Alexiou, Athanasios Argianas, Dimitris Baboulis, Dionisis Christofilogiannis, Chryssa, Nick Ervinck, Dimitris Foutris, Vasso Gavaisse, Vassilis Gerodimos, Chris Gianakos, Kornelios Grammenos, Hope, Rowena Hughes, Zoe Keramea, James Lane, Hiroshi MacDonald Mori, Giorgos Maraziotis, Eleanna Martinou, Dimitris Merantzas, Michael Michaeledes, Nina Papaconstantinou, Nikos Papadopoulos, Aemilia Papaphilippou, Joulia Strauss, Stefania Strouza, Thanassis Totsikas, and Kostis Velonis.
