Yerassimos Yannopoulos speaks on “Money and Art” at the Museum of Cycladic Art

The Museum of Cycladic Art and the Alpha Bank Numismatic Collection organised a major exhibition entitled "Money. Tangible symbols in ancient Greece". The exhibition is structured along eight thematic units, in which 85 coins from the Alpha Bank Collection are exhibited together with 159 objects (clay vases, terracotta figurines, reliefs, gold jewellery, measuring vessels etc.) from 32 archaeological museums and collections in Greece, Italy, France and the United Kingdom.
 
On the occasion of the exhibition, the Museum of Cycladic Art organised a series of three lectures. The first lecture explored the relationship between Money and Art (and how the necessity of the former may affect the meaning of the latter and/or jeopardise its autonomy). 
 
Prof. Konstantinos Papageorgiou, Dakis Joannou and Yerassimos Yannopoulos were the three panellists in such first lecture on 1 February 2018, with Babis Papadimitriou, the editor of the daily national newspaper “Kathimerini”, acting as moderator.
