Christofilogiannis Dionisis

Dionisis Christofilogiannis (b. 1973, Greece) lives and works in Athens. Christofilogiannis has exhibited internationally in distinguished museums and institutions including National Museum of Contemporary Art Athens (2020), Biennale 6 Thessaloniki (2017), State Museum of Contemporary Art of Thessaloniki (2019), Museo of Contemporary arts Iberoamericano (2016), Muzeul de Artă Cluj-Napoca (2020), Nakagawa Gallery Tokyo (2012), Hydra School Projects (2014), Luciano Benetton Collection (2018), Kunsthalle, Athens (2013), Celeste Prize, New York (2010), Benaki Museum, Athens (2016), TINA-B, Prague (2010), Contemporary Museum of Naples (2009). Dionisis’ artistic approach deals with a dialogue between different types of art. His works dominate the architectural element and geometrical forms where simplicity, purity, and abstraction come together with beautification and lyricism. He comments on the contemporary social, economic and political disorder where the right to housing, a fundamental human right, is placed under constant questioning. He is the founder of the active artist run space52 and the magazine “one after another” in Athens. Space52 is an Athens-based nonprofit hosting an annual program of exhibitions, publications, and resident practitioners that aim to expand critically engaged dialogues around contemporary art practice in Greece. Space52 was founded in 2017 by Dionisis Christofilogiannis, a multidisciplinary artist based in Athens and a Professor of Fine Art at the American College of Greece. Recent exhibitions include EMST – National Museum of Contemporary Art Greece, MOMus Thessaloniki, and Biennale 6: Thessaloniki.
