The First Generation

THE Evagoras and Kathleen Lanitis Foundation presents a major painting exhibition, ‘The Human Figure in Contemporary Art - The First Generation," at the Evagoras Lanitis Cultural Centre, Limassol from May 10 until June 11.

The exhibition, held in collaboration with the Cultural Service of the Ministry of Education is curated by Dr Antonis Danos.

It is made up of woks by artists born from the 19th century to 1930, who are considered to be the First Generation of contemporary art.

The exhibition consists of over 120 works from the State Collection of Contemporary Art, the Municipality Art Gallery, the Makarios Foundation and many private collections. The works on show are by Costas Averkiou, Andreas Asproftas, Stelios Votsis, Vassilis Vryonides, Adamantios Diamantis, Charilaos Dikaios, Victor Ioannides, Telemanthos Kanthos, Michael Kashalos, Joannis Kissonergis, Demetris Constantinou, Giorgos Mavroides, Loukia Nicolaidou, Costas Economou, Lefteris Economou, G. Pol Georgiou, Christophoros Savva, Andreas Savvides, Takis Frangoudes, Solomos Frangoulides and Andreas Chrysochos.

Mainly paintings, the exhibition also has some fine examples of sculpture and other media, and many of them will be on show for the first time, showing the general public some little-known aspects of the works of the artists.

The exhibition will be opened by Education and Culture Minister, Pefkios Georgiades, at 7.30pm on Wednesday, May 10 and will remain on show from 9am to 1pm and 5-9pm (except Mondays) at the Evagoras Lanitis Cultural Centre near the mediaeval Castle of Limassol.

 

A Whole Family at Kypriaki Gonia -

Tassos Stefanides 1917-1996

THIS exhibition opens on Friday, 12th May at 8.00pm and is a painting exhibition in memory of Tassos Stefanides.

It is an exhibition of work by Tassos, Kate and Panos Stefanides to mark the ten years since Tassos’s death.

With this exhibition, the gallery wants to honour this spiritual man who scaled with his work the heights of the arts of painting, theatre, poetry and literature.

The exhibition will be open from May 12 until May 30.

During the opening ceremony, Theoclis Kougialis will refer to the artist’s work in the field of literature, while Antonis Danos will refer to the visual part of his work.

Tassos Stefanides was born in Nicosia in 1917 and died in 1996.

He dealt with poetry, prose and the writing of revues during the Second World War II.

He published the poesy ‘Concerns,’ ‘Situations’ and ‘Poetic Afternoons’ and the novel ‘The Sons of Waters’ along with ‘A Selection of Short Stories. Apotheosis and Other Dilemmas.’

His short stories, poems, novels, searching studies and other intellectual works were published in literary magazines in Cyprus and in the domestic press. Part of his literature has been translated into English.

A lot of poetic and fiction work is still unpublished. He also dealt with criticism of plays, literature and art, as well as political articles, particularly in the years that followed the Turkish invasion in 1974.

From 1950 he dedicated a large part of his life to painting. His work was exhibited in personal and group exhibitions in Cyprus, Athens, Edinburgh, London, Germany, the former eastern block countries and in Paris.

His paintings were also exhibited in Alexandria and Cairo biennials. Many critics have dealt with his art and some of his paintings are in the State Art Gallery of Modern Cypriot Art and in state and private collection and institutions in Cyprus and abroad.

 

 

Constantinos Constantinides,

at Apocalypse Gallery

PABLO Antonio Rodriguez Vidal, the Ambassador of Cuba in Cyprus, opened the Constantinos Constantinides at Apocalypse Gallery.

In his speech, he said Constantinos’s "hard-working hands, enormous talent and inexhaustible creativity made possible our being here together today, enjoying one of the most difficult expressions of the plastic arts."

He added: "In these pieces of very high artistic, as well as technical, quality which we see today in this prestigious Gallery, Maestro Constantinos –and I take the liberty to call him so because of the calibre of his works – joins the traditional with the modern, the deepest roots of the history of Cyprus to the branches yet to be born, and raises the art to the universal in spreading out his roots to the world.

"Constantinos opens the windows to show us his soul, always loyal to the arts of his people."

Pharos Trust

Richard Wentworth will exhibit at the Pharos Trust Centre for Contemporary Art at 254 Dem. Severis Avenue, Nicosia, from May 9 – July 31.

Wentworth was one of the artists chosen for Symposiart a few years ago in a series of British Artists organised through the British Council and the Power House.

More and More

Andreas Andreou is at Technis Dromena gallery until May 10, with ‘Stones on a Bowl.’

Tefkros Angelides is at Opus 39 with ‘Autobiography.’

Stefano Paci is at Gallery Argo, until May 20.

George Demetriou will be at the Academic and General Bookshop, Hermes Street, Larnaca, from May 12.

The Charalambos Constantinou exhibition of painting drawing and caricature is on from May 5-7 at the Scali Cultural Centre, Aglandjia.

Glyn Hughes is at Gloria Gallery, ground floor, with ‘Post Wrexham’ and the first floor with ‘The Pedeios.’

And there is even more dear readers with a message from that excellent artist Paris Metaxas who is opening a gallery in Limassol.

It’s called Art Mmisshimou and opens on Tuesday, May 9 at 7.30pm, with an exhibition by the Palestinian artist Bushra Shamma, who lives in New York.

Paris says the gallery, near the Rialto, in Heroes Square, Limassol, is small - 6x6m - and he visualises it as a platform for young new talent and free expression of all kinds: poetry, dancing, videos and, of course, painting and sculpture. If they can put their minds to it, conceptual art, too.
