TETRAGON implemented temporary exhibitions for the Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation in Thessaloniki and Chios
The exhibition “Thessaloniki’s Commerce 1870-1970” presents through unique archival and photographic material the productive history of the old commercial center of the city, during the period 1870-1970, based on the results of a research program.
The exhibition presents Thessaloniki as an important commercial center of a wider production area. The changes as well as the consequences of commercial activities in relation to political planning and economic changes are presented, thus reminding the visitor that many of them still exist. The exhibition is articulated in two main sections, through which the visitor can first comprehend the broader political-economic context and then experimentally explore the history of the commercial center through its known neighborhoods.
TETRAGON realised the museological and museographic designs in collaboration with PIOP, designed and edited the audiovisual projections and implemented the construction.
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.
