Opening: Friday 27 November, 5:00 p.m.
with an address by Katerina Gregos
(also opening of Amsterdam Art Weekend)

The solo exhibition Antonis Pittas – hold on plays on the various meanings of the phrase “hold on:” a request to wait a brief moment, words of encouragement for enduring a difficult situation, and the physical act of maintaining one’s grip with both hands. Pittas’s installation combines these meanings to create free associations between the situation in the exhibition space, various art historical sources, and imagery relating to the distress of contemporary European politics. In this way, Pittas provides a platform on which to reactivate all of these elements as parts of public memory in the making, in what could be called a performative installation.
Tamara Kuselman will present a performance that responds to Pittas’s work on the last day of the exhibition.
