After various exhibitions dedicated to iconic modern and contemporary Greek artists like Pavlos Dionyssopoulos, Vaso Katraki, Christos Kapralos, Vassilis Skylakos, George Zongolopoulos and Giannis Michas, Roma Gallery continues its radical programming with the goal of shedding light on the historical figures that shaped Greece’s avant-garde scene. Roma Gallery proudly presents the oeuvre of artist Danil Panagopoulos (1924-2008) in the monographic exhibition Danil: light, physics & metaphysics, divided into two instalments – Part I: Youth and Part II: Maturity. The exhibition’s curator, Dr. Manos Stefanidis, notes: ‘Danil remains the unexplored enigma of the ‘60s generation, similar to how Diamantis Diamantopoulos is considered the enigmatic artist of the ‘30s’.

Part I: Youth, 22/04/2021 – 14/06//2021

Danil (Panagopoulos) studied under Konstantinos Parthenis and obtained a scholarship from the Greek government to study in Paris. There, he completed most of his works, heavily inspired by the revolutionary atmosphere of May ’68. He was a friend and a collaborator to art critic Pierre Restany, who introduced the artistic movement of Nouveau Réalisme – the thoughtful European response to the cheerful frivolity of American Pop art. Witty, introverted and dedicated to his uncompromising quest, Danil left behind a collection of works that became a landmark of his era. The importance of his art surpasses the geographical limits of Greece and can be compared to some of the emblematic moments of the postwar European avant-garde. For Danil, great art is born when aesthetic need becomes a societal need.
