The Sotiris Felios Collection at the RE-culture III Festival in Patras
3rd International Contemporary Art Festival │ RE-culture III
Introducing great Greek Collections
A new attempt of Art in Progress is to bring together the local community and the rest of the country with significant collections of contemporary Greek art. Deputizing state weakness for cultural education and in support of modern Greek art, private collections constitute an oasis of information and education for citizens, but also a significant potential promotion of Greek artists’ work in the wider society. This year, in the Skagiopoulio Foundation, a part of one of the the most important art collections of contemporary Greek figurative painting and sculpture in the country will be presented, the Sotiris Felios Collection. The presentation of the Sotiris Felios Collection in Patras will include 159 works and will be curated by Kleomenis Kostopoulos, giving an opportunity to art lovers throughout the country to become acquainted with a unique cultural heritage from Greek contemporary artists.
