|Jannis Kounellis: Untitled (1988)|
ACCIDENTIALLY perhaps, but everybody seems to go til Athens and Greece this summer. And artwise there is - of course - a lot to see, since this is the cradle of western art and culture. Maybe modern and contemporary art is not exactly what you connect with Greece. But Jannis Kounellis (1936) was actually from Pireaus. And on the coming Copenhagen Art Festival (from 24/8 to 2/9) it will be possible to experience the yonger artist Yorgos Sapountzis (1976).
IT IS POSSIBLE to experience modern and even contemporary art in Athens. Here is a guide to the exhibitions and galleries:
