  • [01] PM to chair Inner Cabinet meeting

    ANA-MPA/The Inner Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister George Papandreou, will convene on Thursday to discuss the course of government's work and its priorities, as well as implementation of decisions taken at the recent EU Summit.

    According to reports, the meeting will also touch on proposals by Minister of State Minister Ilias Mossialos regarding public media outlets.

    Earlier, the premier is scheduled to meet with his associates regarding ruling PASOK party's upcoming conference, as well as the government's preparation ahead of annual Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF).

    [02] Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika-A Timeless Contemporary

    ANA-MPA/"Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika, A Timeless Contemporary", a tribute exhibition dedicated to the work of the renowned Greek painter, is held at the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation on the island of Andros.

    Running through September 25, the exhibition is a tribute to an artist who was instrumental in advancing art and thought in Greece as much through his work in painting as through his many writings", according to the organisers.

    More than 100 works derived from various institutions and private collections (71 paintings, 21 drawings and 12 sculptures), made all the more interesting by the fact that the Greek public has only rarely had the chance to see them in the past, will offer the exhibition's visitors a view into an extremely intriguing aspect of that seminal work, though one that is not perhaps widely known.ana-mpa

    Originally inspired by Picasso’s and Braque’s analytical Cubism and influenced by fauvist investigations into the use of color - notably the work of Matisse - as well as the rhythm of orphic works, Ghika created his own visual universe; a language that was inseparably linked to the light and landscapes of Greece and especially Hydra, the place he held most dear.ana-mpa

    A major representative of what is known as "the generation of the '30s", this “timeless contemporary” (as his close friend, the Nobel winning poet Odysseus Elytis had called him) became the link between the European avant-garde and Greek modernism and has rightfully earned a prominent place in Greek art history, the organisers said.

    The exhibition will be complented by various side-line events, including a round-table discussion on the "generation of the '30s" comrpising eminent personalities of the Arts and Letters.
