  • The National Hellenic Museum is full of color and texture for the first ever retrospective of the Abstract Expressionist George Kokines. Visitors will learn about Kokines’ place in the art world as they view his impressive 8ft-tall carved cement works, drawings of geometrical forms, paintings layered with unconventional materials, and more. 

    Explore Kokines’ journey to embrace his Greek American identity, his constant experimentation, and how his experiences — including witnessing the events of September 11, 2001 — influenced his work. The largest installation of his career, “September 11,” is featured. The works in this exhibition exemplify Kokines’ textural and immersive style and his embrace of gesture and improvisation.
