press release

Anticamera Iolas. Materiali d’Archivio is a display of archival material relating to the galleries of the legendary Greek art dealer Alexander Iolas (1907–1987).

The show presents more than forty catalogues and over thirty original posters printed on the occasion of the exhibitions staged by Iolas at his galleries in Athens, Geneva, Madrid, Milan, New York, Paris and Rome. Documenting four decades of exhibitions, spanning from the 1950s to the late 1980s, the archival material retraces the professional and personal relationships linking Iolas to some of the most important artists of his time: from the Surrealists (Victor Brauner, Max Ernst, René Magritte, Man Ray, Dorothea Tanning, Leonor Fini) to the Nouveau Réalistes (Niki de Saint Phalle, Yves Klein, Martial Raysse, Jean Tinguely), from Italian masters such as Giorgio de Chirico, Lucio Fontana, Eliseo Mattiacci, Pino Pascali and Roberto Crippa to the Greek artist Pavlos, and the American William N. Copley, Harold Stevenson and Andy Warhol.

The exhibition set-up, which includes Iolas’ own desk, is designed by Filippo Bisagni.
