Guided Tours at the exhibition Takis: Cosmos in Motion (in Greek) - Εικόνα

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, in collaboration with the Takis Foundation - Research Center for the Art and the Sciences, is staging a major exhibition of iconic sculptures by the internationally-acclaimed visual artist Takis (Panayiotis Vassilakis, 1925–2019) between 23 June and 7 November 2021.

The exhibition, which is entitled Τakis: Cosmos In Motion, was made possible by a grant from the  Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). Presenting 46 representative works by the leading Greek artist in the public spaces of the SNFCC, the show will introduce Takis to a new generation, as well as providing those already familiar with his work with a fresh perspective on its significance.

The artworks featured in the exhibition include Takis’ emblematic Aeolians, Light Signals-Archimedes’ Screw, and Fireworks, as well representative works from his “Musicals”, “Magnetic Wall / The 4th Dimension”, “Spirals”, “Electrical Barrels”, “Flowers” and “Spheres” series.

Collectively and individually, Takis’ works comprise a world in motion, a world which visitors can explore and connect to in an exhibition centered on the artist’s exploration of the laws of nature, the cosmic forces of the universe, and on his attempt to give invisible forces a physical dimension.
