The album Parallel Viewing originates from the namesake exhibition taking place in Theocharakis Foundation (from November 2023 to January 2024). It includes 70 works of different styles and eras from the Bank of Greece Art Collection which are presented for the first time in parallel observation with the aim of establishing an open dialogue among them and with the spectator. The exhibition includes three sections entitled, respectively, “Places and Spaces”, “Myths and People”, “The Dynamics of ‘Ellipsis’”. Each one incorporates smaller “cycles of viewing”, wherein modern or contemporary artworks from the Collection find themselves side by side with historical pieces, thus shedding light on the connections, parallelisms, variations, interesting contrasts, and interpretations that emerge. The album is available for sale exclusively at the Theocharakis Foundation during the exhibition.
