Gagosian Gallery in Athens presents Giles a group exhibition curated by Artemis Baltoyanni and inspired by John Barth’s 1966 comic novel Giles Goat-Boy. Taking Barth’s novel as a point of departure, the artists included in this exhibition summon up Giles Goat-Boy’s unmistakable spirit of self-reflection and dark humour. Alter egos, self-portraits and orphaned parts of the body emerge throughout the artworks on display.
Participating artists include: FLAME, Louise Bonnet, Maurizio Cattelan, Dan Finsel, Apostolos Georgiou, Matthew Hansel, Anna K.E., Sanya Kantarovsky, Josh Kline, Friedrich Kunath, Calvin Marcus, Frances Stark, Andra Ursuta, Jan Kiefer, Nicolas Grenier, and Cindy Sherman.
