The National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST) is pleased to present the first in-depth presentation of Mikhail Karikis’ work in Greece. A prominent representative of Greece’s cultural diaspora, Karikis was born in Thessaloniki and is currently based between London and Lisbon.

His exhibition “Because we are together” will be shown at the National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST) until May 28. It is structured around six key audio-visual installations from Karikis’s work over the last decade: Weather Orchestra (2022), Surging Seas (2022), Ferocious Love (2020), No Ordinary Protest (2018), Children of Unquiet (2014) and Sounds from Beneath (2011-2012).

These installations are complemented by selected smaller works, photographs and texts. What they all share is a sense of polyphonic poetics in which separate narratives connect groups brought together by a sense of solidarity in their struggles for a better future.



The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11 am-7 pm (and until 10 pm on Thursday).

It is closed on Mondays and on March 25, May 1, Orthodox Easter Sunday.
