Exhibition “Whispers”, Museum of Contemporary Art of Crete

The Museum of Contemporary Art of Crete presents the exhibition “Whispers”, a new production that traces situations-cries expressed discreetly and quietly, like whispers. The exhibition, will open on Friday, October 30 at 20:00 on the Museum’s premises at 32 Messolonghiou St in the old town of Rethymno.

The title, “Whispers”, is inspired from the great Irishman Samuel Beckett and his apposite talk of words dropping to whispers, of whispers rising into cries, of the eternal mumbling and the memory behind it; it draws also on the whisper of bodies as bequeathed to humanity by Emily Dickinson, the poetess of I died for beauty.

The exhibition aims to explore the artists’ views on issues of gender, identity and fear and their conclusions about prohibitions and social codes. It also wishes to touch on the power of delving, in the interests of recognising traumas, into the process of life generated by thought as well as the whisper of the cell as it advances towards old age.

The artists who participate with new or older works selected to promote the quest of the title, i.e. of the issue the exhibition aspires to illuminate, are all women.

They are twenty-four women artists from Greece, Europe and the USA. They are joined by one male artist who collects the interviews of women who talk about their feelings.

Choose one of our beautiful villas in Rethymno town and participate to its cultural events.
