Curated by Myrtia Nikolakopoulou

 

Duration: January 16 – February 13, 2020

Venue: Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, National Library of Greece, Children’s Section

A group exhibition for the financial support of the Network for Children’s Rights in collaboration with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre at the National Library of Greece, Children’s Section, curated by Myrtia Nikolakopoulou. 

The Network for Children’s Rights, a non-profit organisation whose aim is to safeguard the rights of children as set out by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) celebrates 15 years of operation, while this year marks 30 years since the adoption of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child by the United Nations General Assembly. In this context, the Network organizes an anniversary exhibition, entitled “The child and his world”, with the aim to attract social awareness and financial support for its smooth operation as it has limited resources and it heavily relies on volunteering.

The initiative was warmly embraced by emerging and established contemporaty artists and illustrators, offering their work to support the social oeuvre of the Network. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center embraced it too as a host.
