80 YEARS OF CGMGA: TALES WITH THE SCENT OF MASTIC

On the occasion of the Chios Gum Mastic Growers Association’s 80th anniversary, the periodical exhibition “80 Years of CGMGA, Mastic-flavored Stories” presents unique evidence of the history of the association, the way it has managed the production and trade of mastic and also its importance in the island’s life.

The main exhibition material is original archive material from the Association, supplemented by photographs, objects and videos. The characteristic motifs of the Chios’ “xysta” have been the inspiration for the exhibition design, which in combination with the vibrant colors create a festive atmosphere, while through tangible objects (copies of documents) the exhibition acquires an experiential character.
TETRAGON prepared the museological and museographic designs in collaboration with PIOP, designed and edited the graphics, audiovisual projections and undertook the construction.
