Contemporary Art On View
Laboratory Antigone, by Maria Papadimitriou, 2016
The Onassis Festival NY 2016—Antigone Now—offered occasion to commission artworks from three international artists now on view at the Onassis Cultural Center New York. The gallery works can be seen until December 15, and the Art Wall in the atrium is on view until January. Admission is free.
Laboratory Antigone - Maria Papadimitriou created a site-specific art installation, on view in the Gallery. The multifaceted work is described by the artist as a preamble to the tragedy that plays out in Sophocles' Antigone.
We, Antigone - This 35-minute film by Stefanos Tsivopoulos combines visually poetic images and stirring interviews with its subject, 25-year-old Rakeem Edwards. The film is on view in the Gallery.
Repoussoir for a new perspective - For the Art Wall in the Olympic Tower Atrium, Alexandra Kehayoglou created a hand-woven tapestry using tufted wool that forms a rugged landscape.
