Rue des Fleurus was the home of Gertrude Stein in Paris, renowned as a gathering place for avant-garde artists and writers, such as Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, Henri Matisse, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Paul Cézanne, who frequented its Saturday evening gatherings. It was a pivotal cultural hub that brought together the brightest artists, writers and thinker of the time, fostering creativity, collaboration, and intellectual exchange. In homage to Stein's groundbreaking influence, this exhibition invites viewers to immerse themselves in a vibrant exploration of the salon atmosphere and its enduring impact on artistic expression. The exhibition pays homage to Stein's legacy while reflecting on themes of identity, language, abstraction, and the avant-garde. The gallery space has been completely transformed into a salon, filled with artworks from Greek and international artists who have either exhibited all over the world or this is their first time exposed to this part of the art scene. Participating artists: Emily Yong Beck, Jake Clark, James Drinkwater, Liam Fallon, Humberto Poblete Bustamante, Alexandra Doré, Jordy Kerwick, Anastasia Kourkouta, Mevlana Lipp, Vasilis H., Markella Ksilogiannopoulou, Natalia Maniaka, Vasilis Markosian, Nicholas Moenich, Jean Nagai, Vincent Pocsik, Stefan Rinck, SOCKO, Filippos Telesto, Charis Vlahos et al.
