Contemporary church art: Architecture & Painting.

22 November 2010 until 27 November 2010

This exhibition of works by contemporary architects and icon painters at the Byzantine and Christian Museum was held in parallel with the “2nd Academic Symposium on Modern Greek Church Art”, which has been organized by the University of Athens, Faculty of Theology in collaboration with scholars from departments of Architecture and Engineering at the University of Patras and elsewhere.

The exhibitors used their knowledge of contemporary art and architecture to enter into a dialogue with the newest trends internationally. Then, delving into the repository of tradition, they create work which combines the contemporary and the traditional.
