Art exhibition of Maria Iliopoulou “Ancient Greek Art in the Museums of the World” at the National Archaeological Museum’s Cafe
Exhibition of copies or works inspired mainly by the Laconic Art and the Art of Taranto (colony of Sparta) but also by the Art of Attica and the wider Greek area, in general (Crete, Thera, Kos, Cyprus ..)
Maria Iliopoulou’s love for painting on ceramics drawing inspiration from works of antiquity to the present day sparked the idea of creating an exhibition of contemporary works, a dialogue between the present and the past, through representations, geometric lines, patterns, shapes and forms.
This small set of works that is constantly enriched (mainly on ceramic surfaces: plates, tiles and vases as well as on wooden surfaces) gives the opportunity to the visitor to see gathered in one space some of the countless works of Ancient Greek Art that are exhibited in Museums of the Greek periphery (Archaeological Museum and House of Europe at Sparta, Museum of Prehistoric Thera in Santorini, Archaeological Museum of Heraklion..) as much as in various Museums of the Western world (British Museum, Louvre Museum, Etruscan Museum of Rome, Archaeological Museum of Taranto).

Exhibition duration: September 22 – October 22, 2022
