Through the trilogy of exhibitions ‘New Horizon of Painting’, Frissiras museum, presents distinguished artists from its collections, depicts contemporary figurartive trends in painting from all over the world, in an effort to comment on the tangible and intagible notions in the history of painting, its underlying dynamics and its fields of expression in the future. In this , first out of three, part , entitled ‘The Identities of Others’, each artist approaches in their own way, the notion of identity, expressing not only individual, but also collective aspirations.

New Horizons exhibition continued
The first exhibition of the trilogy «New Horizons», which approaches the issue of the «identity of others», continues successfully. In this part, the viewer has the chance to observe the various approaches of this particular subject, as depicted by each artist, and also see both collective and individual aspirations artistically expressed. So, it seems like an identity, except of functioning as a limitation, and without abolishing one’s uniqueness, can be liberating as well.
