GILES: Gagosian Gallery, Athens

Where: Gagosian Gallery
When: 22nd September to 26th November, 2016
Why Go: To see modern day art inspired by a 1960s cult novel

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.
