Due to the ongoing pandemic, all performance dates are subject to change.

Using Takis’ visual universe as a springboard, this original workshop will introduce children from the Municipality of Moschato-Tavros to the work of this pioneering artist. Children will also be able to create their own art pieces, employing idiosyncratic material, such as magnets, iron filings and metal. Participants will discover the phenomenon of magnetism by creating sculptures attracted to magnets, and will also create their own metallic signals (akin to those made by Takis) that will be moving through the use of air. Promoting art and science to younger generations through educational programmes was, after all, one of the artist’s major goals and part of his vision.

The children’s art pieces will be exhibited at the Museum of Cycladic Art next October.

The exhibition ΤΑΚΙS. Sculptor of Magnetism, Light and Sound will be held at the Museum of Cycladic Art from 20 May to 25 October 2020, a co-production with Tate Modern and MACBA Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona. The exhibition, the last to have been curated with the participation of the late artist, is one of the largest exhibitions on Takis’ work internationally, collecting selected works of the artist dating from the 1950s to the early 2000s.

In the context of the exhibition, the Athens Festival and the Museum of Cycladic Art will jointly hold two events at Peiraios 260 aiming to introduce visitors to Takis’ creative universe in diverse ways.

As part of the Athens & Epidaurus Festival 2020. Educational programme in collaboration with the Museum of Cycladic Art
