35 years without Che Guevara Photography exhibition in Rethymnon
14 Dec 2002 - 02 Feb 2003
Rethymnon Centre for Contemporary Art, in collaboration with the University of Crete and the State Museum of Comtemporary Art, presents the photography exhibition Che Guevara's death at Art Room 8 in Rethymnon. The exhibition curated by Nikos Hatzinikolaou, professor of History of Art at the University of Crete, is also to be presented shortly in Thessaloniki, at Moni Lazariston.
Organized 35 years after Guevara's assassination, this exhibition pays respect to a moral personality - an example of objectivity, disinterest and militancy. It is presented in order to aggregate the evidence concerning the way the artistic circle reacted, when the news and the photographs of Guevara's assasination, travelled worldwide in October 1967.
The exhibits (paintings, engravings and posters) presented, belong to diverse collections in Latin America, USA and Europe. Original photographs by Freddy Alborta are also exhibited.
The exhibition also includes works by Raul Arellano, Antonio Frasconi, Oskar Rojas, Ian Hillenberg, Ruth Weisberg, Yiannis Gaitis, Dimitris Zouroudis, Kyriakos Katzourakis, Despoina Meimaroglou and Aggelos Skourtis.
