Known, Unknown, Anonymous and On Death Row

Qbox gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition under the title Known, Unknown, Anonymous and On Death Row.



The show combines artists who have been widely recognized and engaged in the art scene with artists who have not yet been known or they will never be as they were not part of the art market.

 Despite the nature of the art-piece a name carries all sorts of information and holds a dynamic by-itself, which is something that artists like Marcel Duchamp (pseudonym Rrose Selavy 1921), Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg (Erased de Kooning, 1953) have dealt with different ways in the past.


Moreover, human portraits are depicted through the medium of painting and photography, which stands as a common thread between the artists. Among the known and unknown artists in the exhibition are: Ellie Coates, Sileia Daskopoulou, David Gates, Takehito Koganezawa, Martin Maloney, Apostolos Michailides, David Mathis, Adrian Piper, Ugo Rondinone, Malick Sidibé, Tabakopoulos and Foundoulis, Rosemarie Trockel, Karen Yasinski. A number of works by anonymous artists are also included in the show.

Duration: 8 November ‘11 - 14 January ’12
