Bernier/Eliades Gallery

Eptachalkou 11, Athens


This event will only be available in the Greek language.

The Bernier/Eliades Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of the Belgian artist Martin Margiela in Greece for the very first time. You are invited to seize an exclusive opportunity to explore Margiela’s artworks and to delve into the history of one of the most prestigious contemporary galleries of Athens.

Martin Margiela founded Maison Martin Margiela in 1988, in 2009, he abandoned the fashion world and since then he has devoted himself to visual arts. In 2021, his first solo show opened in Paris, followed by shows in Beijing in 2022 and Seoul in 2023. Margiela’s diverse visual practice spans various media, including painting, sculpture, installation, collage, and film. His works attest to his fondness for the overlooked and unconventional. Margiela magnifies both disruptions and poetic junctions, seeking beauty in the fleeting.

The Bernier/Eliades Gallery was founded in 1977 in Athens and has since continued working dynamically in the field of contemporary art in Greece. After completing twenty-one years in its old space located at Marasli Street in Kolonaki, the commercial district of Athens, from 1999 the gallery is housed in a Neoclassical building in Thission, the historic center at the foot of the Acropolis.
