Enthusiastic participation of many friends of the ICC who responded to its invitation and, despite the busy weather, came to welcome this exhibition, which is the first event of the ICC after a period of almost two years, as the pandemic and the restrictions imposed, but also the sweeping passage of the Mediterranean cyclone IANOS, then, significantly affected its functionality.

The exhibition: m e t a s i t e s negotiates with the physical environment, human beings and the relationships between them. Relationships that are in constant fermentation and readjustment. Something that exists and is constantly transformed. A sequence of variables where the new and the old meet, coexist, interact and define each other. It is a group exhibition, with a modular structure, in which a total of 58 works by 32 artists are presented. Works of painting, printmaking, drawing, photography and constructions, coming from the art collection of the ICC. A coexistence of views, reflections, and art genres by artists/artists with different aesthetic and experiential references, some from Karditsa and others from everywhere else. This narrative is in open dialogue with the permanent exhibition and is presented in the Apostolos Karka Hall (ground floor) of the ICC.
An educational program has been designed for this exhibition. Prior arrangement with the gallery (tel: 24410 79937 and email: pinakothiki@dimosKarditsas.gov.gr) is necessary for school and other groups wishing to visit the exhibition.
