ATHENS – One of the largest exhibitions on work of the late sculptor Takis, planned with his collaboration, will go on show at the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens from May 20 to October 25, 2020.

Takis, officially Panagiotis Vassilakis, passed away in August aged 94.

“Takis: Sculptor of magnetism, light and sound” will be a collaboration of Tate Modern and Barcelona’s MACBA d’Art Contemporani. It will show a selection of his works between 1950 and 2000, including “Magnetic Fields, 1969”.

In a press statement, the Museum said that Takis’ early sculpture “shows a strong and direct influence from ancient Cycladic objects, along with contemporary sculpture by Alberto Giacometti, Alexander Calder and Picasso.”
