George Zongolopoulos The Vision of Public Sculpture


In collaboration with the George Zongolopoulos Foundation, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center is organizing the first exhibition exclusively dedicated to public sculptures, installed in Greece and other countries, by this iconic artist.

The exhibition traces how Zongolopoulos’ public sculpture charges and converses with installation sites, locations in which it enters into communication with the public on a daily basis; it moreover highlights the importance of public art – all the more relevant in view of the fact that this exhibition is held at SNFCC, which aspires to redefine the citizens’ relationship with the public space.

As part of this exhibition, eight sculptures will go on display in outdoor areas in the Agora and the Rear Agora.
Twelve more sculptures – four of them for the first time – will go on display at the 4th-floor atrium of the National Library of Greece, supplemented by maquettes, constructions, drawings, videos, photos and interactive exhibits that place these sculptures in the context of the public sites where they have been installed.

The panel from Zongolopoulos’ studio, the maquette of the Monument of Zalongo and the surrounding area, and an umbrella from the life-size Umbrellas sculpture will also go on public display for the first time.

Furthermore, the exhibition features videos on Zongolopoulos’ life and work; educational programs based on the sculptor’s work will be on offer in other SNFCC areas.
