“Odysseus and the Bathers” is an ex­hi­bi­tion of works by Amer­i­can artist and po­lit­i­cal ac­tivist Paul Chan at the Cy­cladic Mu­seum in Athens. In the 19th and early 20th cen­turies, artists such as Cezanne, Matisse and Pi­casso used bathers to of­fer com­men­tary on mat­ters of sex­u­al­ity, the re­la­tion­ship of hu­mans with na­ture, the body and var­i­ous other is­sues, and as a sub­ject, they still hold tremen­dous ap­peal for artists. Chan’s bathers are fig­ures made of fab­ric fit­ted onto fans to of­fer an im­pres­sion of move­ment, and ac­cord­ing to the artist, find­ing new ways to cre­ate mov­ing-im­age works be­yond the “frame” is what progress might look like. Open­ing hours are Mon­days, Wed­nes­day, Fri­days and Satur­days from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thurs­days from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sun­days from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. En­trance to the ex­hi­bi­tion costs 5 eu­ros.
