Myrto Xanthopoulou participates in the exhibition Reverb: New Art from Greece in the School of Fine Arts, Boston curated by Eirene Efstathiou and Evita Tsokanta.
September 9–October 18, 2014
Greece’s recent political and social turmoil has had profound effects on the country’s cultural landscape, creating shifting notions about its identity. September 9–October 18, 2014, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (SMFA), will showcase eleven emerging and mid-career Greek artists who illustrate the way artists are interpreting the reverberations of social, political, and economic conditions during this crucial time in Greece’s history.
Guest curated by SMFA alumna Eirene Efstathiou and independent curator Evita Tsokanta, “Reverb” will present an authentic view of the way citizens of Greece have experienced recent history, in stark contrast to the way the media and political leaders have depicted the situation. The eleven artists, many of whom live and work in Athens, will exhibit both existing work and pieces specially commissioned, including photography, video, painting, and mixed media installations.
