ART CAPITAL 2018 at GRAND PALAIS in the Champs-Elysées in PARIS / FRANCE | 10 Greek visual artists represent the Greek Art

Duration: 13th till 18th of February 2018
The well-known art historian and art critic Emmy Varouxaki curates and presents ten modern Greek visual artists who represent once again Greek Art at the Salon of the Independents at the Grand Palais, in the Champs-Elysées, in Paris.
This year is  the eighth year that Mrs. Emmy Varouxaki presents a group exhibition of Greek artists in an exhibition space housed in a magnificent building of eclectic architecture of neoclassical and industrial style that always hosts important exhibitions.
For the history, the organizers confided the art critic and art historian Emmy Varouchakis, who attended the Art Salons and talked with them over the years, telling them about the achievements of contemporary Greek art, to bring groups of Greek artists chosen by her.  In this way the representation of the Greek artists started and continues, despite the difficult times, until today. About 90 Greek artists have exhibited here.
This year, ten contemporary Greek visual artists exhibit at the “Salon des Independants”, a historic Art Salon that hosts all the art trends, both extreme and revolutionary.
Three other salons complete the exhibition: “Artistes Francais”, “Comparaisons” and “peintures a l eau et dessins”.
It should be noted that all exhibitions are presented under the auspices of French President Emmanuel Macron, French Minister of Culture. Francoise Nyssen and all national museums in France.
From 13th  till 18th of February contemporary Greek art is represented by:
Eleni Varouxaki // Palinda Georgoulakou // Stathis Theodoropoulos // Evita Kanellou // Marikita Manolopoulou // Niki Michailidou // Panayiotis Beldekos// Katerina Mavroleon // Eirini Petropoulou and Maria Filopoulou
A short story about the “Salon des Independants”:
The Salons were born under the command of Louis XV, who wanted to establish the art of the Academy and gave the Louvre for this purpose, and especially the so-called Salon Carre. After that  the name was left forever.
The “Salon des Independants”was born in 1887 after repeated refusals to expose pioneers and revolutionary artists in the formal academic salon of French artists. The Impressionists, the Post-Impressionists and the Cubists, with the exception of Picasso, who never exhibits in Salon, established and exhibited for many years (until the First World War) at Salon des Independants . All of Europe's modernism found shelter in the Salon, which were always in selected Paris buildings. Here the informed collectors and the great art merchants went to find and follow the art works of great contemporary talented artists.
Since 2006, the exhibition has been presented @ Grand Palais.
