This year opens with two major international exhibitions and a series of art events by Bill Balaskas. The press release below provides information on the exhibitions and events.
The Market Will Save The World at Kasa Galeri opens January 25, 2013 with a cocktail reception at 18:00 and runs through March 8, 2013.
The Vision of the Market at the Museum of Contemporary Cuts January 25 to March 8, 2013
Is it possible to understand what is the image that the Market has of the world? And what is the image that we consume every day? What is the image that the Market portrays of itself, the world, and us?
Kasa Galeri and the Museum of Contemporary Cuts (MoCC) present two international exhibitions The Market Will Save The World and The Vision of the Market by London-based Greek artist Bill Balaskas.
The Market Will Save the World will present a survey of Balaskas’ practice that spans from the analysis of the economic crisis in Greece to the artist’s latest work, Monopoly (2013), a site-specific installation for Kasa Galeri.
The exhibition at Kasa Galeri follows Bill Balaskas’ intervention on the facade of the Royal College of Art in London, one of the most renowned art schools in the world.
The Vision of the Market will present images, video, or text by the artist every day on MoCC’s twitter and Facebook from January 25 to March 8, 2013. The images will then be collated and archived online.
We thank for their gracious support: Sabanci University, the Royal College of Art and Kalfayan Galleries (Athens – Thessaloniki).
