Museums as Cultural Hubs: The future of tradition

ATOPOS cvc participates in the 2019 International Museum Day organized by ICOM on Saturday May 18th. Each year‘s International Museum Day theme was proposed by ICOM’s network and aimed to promote museum issues within society. In 2019 the event celebrates the ‘Museums as Cultural Hubs: The future of tradition’ theme. During the International museum Day Atopos will be open from 11:00 to 18:00. The visitors will be able to visit the solo exhibition of Kalliopi Lemos’ titled Bound. The exhibition will showcase for the first time Lemos’ new film Bound along with an installation of the same woven linen bandages carrying fragments of Greek poetess Sappho, that the artist introduced in 2018 in her solo show All is to be dared in Gazelli Art House, London. These bandages become the main feature of the film, enabling the story between four people. Bound explores our internal boundaries, the ones we set for ourselves and limit our freedom. These bandages represent ideas, obsessions and desires that we embrace in life, sometimes becoming our own prison.

Duration of exhibition: 16.05.19 – 21.06.19 // Days & Hours: Monday – Friday, 11:00am – 6:30pm
