The idea for the Mosaic Odysseys Exhibition came while the British mosaicistand curator Aliyahgator was attending a talk in London about the Byzantine mosaics of Thessaloniki. The talk was so inspiring and the mosaics were so vibrant and colourful that she wanted to find out more.
She contacted the International Association of Contemporary Mosaicists who put her in touch with some leading mosaicists in Athens. Aliyahgator began to acquire some knowledge about the contemporary mosaic scene in Greece, and to make friends with Greek artists, adding “I was amazed by the variety and versatility of work I was seeing, and thought that it would make an extraordinary exhibition in London.”
The exhibition takes place at The Hellenic Centre on Marylebone’s Paddington Stret from 19th July to 23rd July. It moves to the Michael Cacoyannis Foundation in Athens on September 9th, and then to the Municipal Art Gallery in Mykonos on September 23rd.
