In Paper’s Night at the Benaki Museum


The Benaki Museum presents the exhibition, entitled “In Paper’s Night: Known and Unknown Drawings by Nikos Houliaras”, curated by art historian Elizabeth Plessa (Tuesday 18 September - 24 November 2018).

The current presentation was occasioned by the quite recent discovery of some unknown drawings in the late artist’s collection, which date from his student days in the Athens School of Fine Arts until his final creative moments. The importance of the drawing in Nikos Houliaras’s oeuvre is further enhanced by the inclusion also of drawings from some landmark sets in the exhibition and publication history of his course as a painter.

Houliaras explored numerous techniques and kinds of paper: from Indian ink, the glass marker, collage and methodical burning with a cigarette-lighter, even to tar paper, cardboard, sheets from printed calendars and the compositional form of comics.

The architectural design of the exhibition was undertaken by Stamatis Zannos. The exhibition is accompanied by a Benaki Museum publication bearing the same title, which contains texts, unpublished photographic material and images of all the works, and was designed by Erifyli Arapoglou.
