Ancient Greek Sculptures Conquer Manhattan

greek statueThe Greek General Consulate in New York will host, from April 10 to May 4, the exhibition entitled “Seeking the Ancient Kallos” by the famous American photographer Josh Garrick, curated by Iris Kritikou and designed by Marios Voutsinas.

The exhibition includes photographs of ancient Greek statues, printed on aluminum. This original technique gives the photographic print an almost tangible depth. Garrick‘s works highlight often unseen details of Greek treasures, as well as some of the more famous sculptures.

The exhibition had been presented in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, Greece and in the Sismanoglio Megaro of Greece’s General Consulate in Istanbul.

Josh Garrick has a Master of Fine Arts degree from Columbia University in New York. Ancient Greece is the main theme of his work and the Greek state has honored him with an unprecedented access to famous monuments and museums.

The exhibition aims to highlight the ancient Greek culture as the birthplace of the western arts and the inseparable relationship of modern Greece with Europe. The title of the exhibition reveals the photographer’s desire to penetrate the roots of classical beauty, as reflected in the ancient monuments that he has been studying for decades in the museums of Greece.

  1. I am tired of trying to use my free speech to condemn Skopians, Skopian supporters, and treasonous leftist cowards…. on an alleged Greek website… only to have one of those leftist cowards (Anastasios Papapostolou — the owner of this website) repeatedly censor me. Thus I will be moving on.

    Since my free speech is not respected by censoring leftist thug Mr.Papapostolou, I plan to use it to build a website dedicated to exposing this antihellenic coward and his pseudo-Greek leftist drivel. Before I go I’d like to say a few things.

    This is not a “Greek” website. This is website dedicated to spreading antihellenic leftist ideology in Greece. Much like the Skopians substitute “Bulgarian” with “Macedonian”… all our leftists do is substitute their leftist ideology with Hellenism. (in particular their obsession with multiculturalism). Ancient Greeks staunchly defended their country from uninvited invaders. This is quite unlike leftists on Greek Reporter that rather than condemn illegals, *treasonously* support illegals.

    The Greek left are collectivist cowards. They will do anything to try and fit in.. .including inch by inch erase the Greek people.

    Case in point… rather than condemn the pretentious self-anointed “human rights” ngos, foreign media, and foreign nationalist that now patronizingly try to dishonorably downplay the Skopians transformation into “ancient Macedonians” and irredentism … rather than condemn them for now trying to talk us out of ethnic existence…. our leftist cowards *all* pretend not to notice their betrayal and bigotry. Rather than condemn their anti hellenism… the pseudo-Greek cowards instead collaborate with foreigners trying to delete our very identity.

    To the Greeks that care about Hellenism… I wish you all the best in your endeavours… and a warning. If we want hellenism to survive, do not treat all alleged “Greeks” the same. Create hellenic institutions that exclude leftists from participation (or any other antihellenic ideological groups like anarchists). The leftists are only Greek in name. Not the realm of ideas.

  2. These works are powerful. I hope the exhibitions attracts New Yorkers who are not already grecophiles. We all benefit from appreciation of ancient Greece.
