    The “image” editions present the 10th visual calendar and simultaneously organize a painting exhibition featuring the works of 14 contemporary artists featured in the calendar. The exhibition will take place on Saturday, December 9, 2023, at 18:30 at the Archaeological Museum of Corfu.

    The 2024 calendar is inspired by and dedicated to quadrupeds, the silent companionship that one often desires to have around. Nature serves as the basis for human evolution, and human life is closely connected to that of animals. The coexistence of humans and animals composes beauty through diversity. The relationship between humans and animals has fascinated scientists, philosophers, and artists throughout the centuries.

    The calendar delves into the profound connection between humans and animals, exploring the values and ethics that humans find in these creatures. It suggests that animals possess qualities and virtues that humans may lack or envy, such as faith, empathy, courage, patience, adaptability, and the ability to find joy in life.

    The opening event on December 9 will include a presentation by Konstantinos Stoupathis, a museum curator, educator, and art conservator. Fourteen contemporary painters will contribute their unique perspectives on beloved quadrupeds.

    Participating artists:

    • Dina Anastasiadou
    • Iolanda Anthi-Varotsi
    • Christos Antonaropoulos
    • Elena Garstea
    • Eirini Kana
    • Spyros Kolivas
    • Dimitris Kretsos
    • Tina Mascha
    • Dimitris Miliotis
    • Miltos Pantelias
    • Marina Stellatou
    • Nikos Stratakis
    • Kostas Tompros
    • George Feretos

    The exhibition will be hosted at the Archaeological Museum of Corfu, and it will be open to the public from Wednesday to Sunday (08:30-15:30) starting from December 9, 2023, until January 14, 2024.

    The calendar, which serves as an artful exploration of the relationship between humans and animals, will be available from December 1, 2023, through the “image” editions.

    Special thanks to Ms. Tenia Rigakou, Head of Antiquities of Corfu, for her generous support and hosting of the exhibition at the Archaeological Museum of Corfu.
