Dancing Goddesses is a group exhibition comprised of 16 international artists. Conceived and curated by Marina Vranopoulou the show will open on May 27 on the island of Mykonos at Dio Horia.
The exhibition takes as its starting point a catalyzing episode that took place in the island of Delos that transformed the island’s nature and defined its heritage. In Ancient Greek mythology, Delos, a once unregistered floating personified island, gained its name and position by accepting to become birthplace to ancient twin deities Apollo and Artemis. During the Peloponnesian War, the city-state of Athens purified the island by removing all dead bodies and exiling its inhabitants. Thus, Delos was rendered both as a deathless and birthless place.
