The gallery of IANOS bookshop is travelling around Greece to present three unique exhibitions in the cities of Athens, Rhodes and Aegina.

From Izmir in Turkey to the Island of Aegina

After its success in Athens and Thessaloniki, the group art exhibition entitled "90 Postcards from Izmir", which is organized on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the disaster in Asia Minor, will be shown in the Historical and Folklore Museum of the Municipality of Aegina from 13 to 22 August. At the opening on 13 August, exhibition curator Iris Kritikou, Paraskevas Karasoulous on the part of publisher "Little Bear" and journalist and vice-president of the union of the residents of Izmir Eleni Bistika-Katramopoulou will speak about the "burden of memory that we all carry inside ourselves".

Cavafy’s Cairo

At the same time, the "Mehmet Ali" house will host the successful exhibition entitled "Invisible Group", which is dedicated to the great Alexandrian poet Constantine Cavafy, as it is part of the programme of this year’s Festival of Philippi. The works of art included in the interior of the magnificent monument portray a perfectly poetic Cavafy atmosphere. The exhibition runs until 18 August and then it will travel to Egypt, where it will be presented at the Cairo Opera House as part of the commemoration of the 13th anniversary of Cavafy’s death. The event will take place this December and it will be jointly organized by the Greek Embassy in Cairo, the Greek Cultural Centre, the Ministry of Culture of Egypt and the Cairo Opera House.


"Greek Summer" with French twists

The group exhibition "Greek Summer" by famous French writer Jacques Lacarriere will be shown until 28 September. The exhibition will take place on the first floor of IANOS bookshop in the centre of Athens. Its author was a passionate admirer of Greece’s mythology and modern history; he had favourite destinations and stayed in Hydra and Patmos for a long time. He was a traveller and he loved Greece, from the Peloponnese and Crete to Mount Athos. He shows every small, modest, Greek fragment from the past and present whose aesthetics continue, to this day, to present exactly what the aesthetics of Hellenism should mean.
