The Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre, Associated with the Pierides Foundation (NiMAC) and the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture organise and present the major retrospective exhibition Glyn Hughes 1931-2014. The exhibition, which is staged in collaboration with the Glyn Hughes Foundation, is curated by Yiannis Toumazis.
Few artists have left such an indelible mark on Cyprus as Glyn Hughes. Though a Welshman, his continuous residence on the island for almost six decades (1956-2014) acted as a catalyst for the development of contemporary art in Cyprus and not just that.
Painter, set designer, director, teacher and educator, journalist, art and film critic, writer, poet, pioneer in performance art and happenings in Cyprus, among other things, Glyn Hughes was a multifaceted personality, full of intensity, colour and light, just like his work.
In the framework of the exhibition, a series of parallel events will be organised surrounding the life and work of Glyn Hughes.
The exhibition will be opened by H. E. the President of the Republic of Cyprus Mr. Nicos Anastasiades, on Friday, 27 May 2016 at 19:00.
An opening party will follow in the Powerhouse garden, starting at 20:00.
