The Costakis Collection from the Museum of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki

The exhibition is a small part of the Georgios Costakis collection from the Museum of Contemporary Arts in Thessaloniki. The collector, born in Moscow in 1913, started collecting works by Malevich and others of his companions in the 50’s and 60’s. By the time he returned to Greece in the 70’s, the Russian avant-garde was already established as the European classic of modern art. Besides Malevich the exhibition presented works by Kandinsky, Popowa, Nikritin, Kijun, Rotschenko, Kluzis, El Lissitzky, Ender and others.
