The exhibition  takes place as part of the tribute "NIKOS KAZANTZAKIS, the Eternal World-roamer", refering to the “Odyssey”, the Kazantzakian epic poem, which is the sequel to the famous Homeric epic

The exhibition refers to the “Odyssey”, the Kazantzakian epic poem, featuring the drawings painted by Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika for the English translation of the work of Nikos Kazantzakis from the Benaki Museum and the engravings of Christos Santamouris from the Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation. A focal point of the exhibition is the original typed epic of the “Odyssey”, in a direct encounter with the artistic creations of the two artists. In parallel, the relevant correspondence of Kazantzakis and Hadjikyriakos-Ghika, included in the exhibition, reveals the framework of their co-operation regarding the venture of poetically illustrating the Kazantzakian “Odyssey”. The archive and photographic material is granted by the Kazantzakis Museum and Kazantzakis Publications.
