Byzantine and Christian Museum Presents Within / Beyond Borders. The Collection of the European Bank of Investment

The Byzantine and Christian Museum presents “Within/Beyond Borders. The Collection of the European Bank of Investment” a temporary exhibition: on view until 30 October 2011.

The exhibition theme treats the evolution of the European art during the past fifty years, throughout the presentation of 40 selected artworks from the European Investment Bank collection that reflects the diversity of the European artistic production.

The idea of frontiers ―real of imagined, physical or in the mind― is omnipresent in the most artworks participating in this exhibition, offering the framework for the exploration of the subject in various levels (territorial and visual barriers, transcending or crossing borders, spatial, intellectual and artistic limitations).

The collection of the European Bank of Investement, that is presented for the first time beyond borders, depicts more that half century of artistic creation (since 1958 to nowadays). In the exhibition, 37 widely recognized artists or emblematic figures of contemporary, are participating. (Callum Innes, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Francois Morellet, Sean Scully, Claudio Parmiggiani, Γιάννης Κουνέλλης, Anish Kapoor, Jan Fabre, , Louise Bourgeois, Per Kirkeby, Antonio Saura, Mimmo Jodice, etc.)
