LINEAR B - A memorial project responding to works in the collection of Greek artist Nikos Alexiou

17 November 2011 – 6 January 2012
Private view 17 November 6 – 8.30pm
The Stephen Lawrence Gallery
University of Greenwich, Queen Anne Court, Old Royal Naval College, Park Row, London SE10 9LS

Organised & Curated by Christina Mitrentse and Jonas Ranson

The exhibition presents new works produced by seven contemporary London based artists, responding explicitly to a selection of international artists’ work in the idiosyncratic private collection of late Greek artist Nikos Alexiou.

Archival footage of the complete collection and Nikos Alexiou's last made work, entitled 'Grid' will be also featured in the exhibition.

Incorporating diverse readings, the show explores the dialectical relationships between artists, and between contemporary collectors and artists. It also alludes to the larger conversation of the artist-as-collector and artist-as-curator.
