The exhibition presents work by V. Kalaitzis, Th. Koprianou, D. Zachou, A. Vandera, O. Kassoumi, D. Laiou, D. Rakogianni, H. Keridis, T. Tzantarma, H. Zapounidis, P. Tezapsidis and N. Cymes, which come mainly from the collection of psychiatrist-artist Pavlos Vasiliadis, but also from creators’ the collections of the themselves.
Pavlos Vassiliadis has established twenty-five years ago the Cultural Communication Unit (C.C.U.) of the Psychiatric Hospital of Thessaloniki, with the participation of artists with mental disorders and has organized in collaboration with C.C.U. many exhibitions in Greece and abroad.
The work of these self-taught artists is the result of a psychism, who, through a distinctive artistic language, direct, original and sincere, illustrates our world, bringing us into a new connection with reality.
This art is especially important because:
The exhibition is under the auspices of the Presidency of the Hellenic Republic and the official opening will be held on October 27, 2019, by His Excellency the President of the Hellenic Republic, Mr. Prokopios Pavlopoulos.
