The Michael Cacoyannis Foundation and the Mediterranean Information Office for Environment, Culture and Sustainable Development (MIO-ECSDE) co-organize the exhibition:

“The Dionysian Circle-Myth-Inspiration-Art”

under the auspices of

 the Hellenic National Commission for UNESCO

The exhibition consists of selected artworks of the European Art inspired by the circle of Dionysos from the collection of Mihail Skoullos that will be accompanied with a video projection. The video is entitled “Mythology of Greeks: Dionysos” and is kindly offered by ERT3.

The ancient Greek mythology is extensively rich in quality and quantity and has unique symbolisms. The deeper understanding of the Dionysian Myth-Circle will help us reflect the important aspects of the multiple level crisis in societies nowadays.

The exhibition includes important paintings and drawings, sculptures and micro artist works, ceramics, lithographs, silver oenochoes and other rare objects that cover historically the artistic creation and are primarily focused on the period between the 17th and 20th century. The exhibition is flanked by photos of the performances of the Euripides play “The Bacchae”. Some of the performances were directed by Michael Cacoyannis and all refer to the myth of Dionysos.
