Cris Gianakos

Cris Gianakos, the internationally known artist of the Greek Diaspora, lives and works in New York City. Since the 1960’s he has had a strong presence in the American avant-garde, and his work is part of the collection of numerous museums all over the world. Gianakos’s work moves freely between different media, with his two-dimensional works, his sculptures, and his installations engaging in a continual dialogue. He works with diverse themes – his emphasis on the geometry of the rectangle, his startling selection of the diagonal as his central focus, his emphasis on architectural construction, and so on.

Gianakos has a strong interest in presenting both the architectural and formalistic aspects of space as well as its’ cultural and intellectual dimensions.

Cris Gianakos has exhibited his sculpture at Nassau County Museum of Arts, P.S.1, Socrates Sculpture Park, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Stark Gallery, N.Y.C., State Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessaloniki, Greece. Collections include Fogg Art Museum, Cambridge, Mass, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Moderna Museet, Stockholm, and The Museum of Modern Art, NYC.
