The catalogue of a major exhibition
The publication was released on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition for A. Tassos held at the Benaki Museum – 138 Pireos Street, Athens, from 30 November 2015 to 31 January 2016. The exhibition was organised by Alpha Bank, in partnership with the Benaki Museum and the A. Tassos Society of Visual Arts.
The exhibition was held 28 years after the large retrospective exhibition for the printmaker at the National Gallery in 1987. The aim of the exhibition was to have Tassos’ work re-evaluated by an audience with a sense of art different to that of the era when the pieces were created.
