Private Tour of The Hellenic Centre Exhibitions

You are cordially invited by The Hellenic Initiative
together with The Hellenic Centre
to an Exclusive Guided Tour and Reception.

Dr. Nayia Yiakoumaki, Director of the Hellenic Centre, will give us insight into the newly opened exhibitions:

Vlassis Caniaris: Selected Works 1960s – 1980s features key works by one of the most important post-war Greek artists.

Amy Stephens: Objects of Wonder presents the geological investigations of a British artist into the Cypriot landscape.

These exhibitions begin a new exciting phase for The Hellenic Centre and are at the heart of the Centre’s autumn programme. Long a cultural venue for London’s Greek and Cypriot community, the Centre now offers a new wide-ranging programme, spanning art, music, film, spoken word, food and more; open to everyone and we would love to share this with you.
