  • [01] Greek painter and sculptor Jannis Kounellis passes away

    ROME (T. Andreadis-Syngelakis) - Italian media reported on Thursday that Greek artist Jannis Kounellis passed away. He was born in Piraeus in 1936 and moved to Rome in 1956 where he studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Rome and became a naturalized Italian citizen.

    Associated with Arte Povera since the 1960s, Kounellis investigated the alienation in contemporary society, juxtaposing the materials of urban and industrial civilization with objects of the pre-industrial world.

    He had participated in many international exhibitions, including the Biennale of Paris (1967, 1969), Documenta (1972, 1977, 1982), the Venice Biennale (1972, 1976, 1978, 1980, 1984, 1988, 1993), the Istanbul Biennial (1993), and the Biennale of Sydney (2008). His work has also been exhibited in many museums and institutions such as the Kunstmuseum in Bern, the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, The Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Whitechapel Art Gallery in London, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, and the Neue National gallery in Berlin.
