The exhibition aspires to display and bring out works from the most significant and richest private collection in Cyprus, that of the Cultural Foundation. Systematizing our efforts for the free access of citizens to the Collection but also their education in topics of contemporary art, the Cultural Foundation attests, once more, to the range of its contribution in the field of the Arts, and Culture in general.
Focusing on the public-private binary and its potent implications, the exhibition highlights emblematic works from the Collection and also works by artists of the younger generation. A host of seventy-five paintings, sculptures, constructions, photographs and video make up an exhibitory condition that traces the evolution of the history of art in Cyprus from the beginning of the previous century to the present day.
