Eleni Ganiti - Museum Studies at Leicester
No, this is not a little girl in Greece, looking at trash bags! This is my daughter wondering, once more, what exactly contemporary art is, while touching Andreas Lolis’ work (untitled, 2018, marble, variable dimensions). This exact question initiated my PhD research which aspires to tackle the definition of “contemporary art” by looking into european, public, contemporary art museum collections. My daughter really enjoyed our visit to the “Prosaic Origins” exhibition, by artist Andreas Lolis (b. 1970) in the British School at Athens garden, curated by Nayia Yiakoumaki, as part of NEON’s CITY PROJECT 2018. She found an answer, I hope I will too!
