Upside Down: AFI at the Benaki Museum
An exhibition by the group AFI at the Benaki Museum will present creations inspired by the objects of the museum's permanent collections under the title Upside Down. Their works can stand on their own as exemplary artistic entities, as they project their aesthetic integrity publicly and provocatively. The show will be held at both the Peiraios Street Annexe and the main museum building from 27 April to 14 September, in the form of interventions throughout the exhibition areas of the permanent collection.
The group AFI was established in 1979 and initially comprised 10 artists who were involved in the applied arts. Today the group has eight members: Maria Grigoriou, Judith-Allen Efstathiou, Inger Karlsson, Korina Koutouzi, Despina Pantazopoulou, Yiannis Papadopoulos, Eva Heiladaki and Theodora Horafa.
The exhibition is being curated by art historian Lauren Fensterstock and has been designed by Lili Pezanou.
