Pen Friends II: A memory of freedom

January 15, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - January 29, 2020 @ 12:00 am


With Valia Matsentidou.

Between 1860 and 1930 various groups of Belgian Artists expressed their need for freedom and expression through their works of art. The journal ‘L’art modern’ refers to the new Le Salon Libre, an ‘open’ exhibition hall where everyone could express themselves without limitations. The A. G. Leventis Gallery is opening its own ‘salon’ of free expression where personal memory will be turned into creative letter writing.

This unique writing workshop invites the adult friends of the A. G. Leventis Gallery to ‘speak’ with the artworks in the temporary exhibition ‘Metamorphosis – Belgian Art 1860 – 1930’ and then amongst themselves, by writing letters.

To participate in this workshop, it is necessary to attend the 1st and 2nd meeting. The workshop will be completed with a third meeting, where the anonymous letter writers will be revealed and the work discussed.

At the end of the programme all participants will receive a diploma of participation.
