‘’Writing and Reading’’ is the title of a series of group exhibitions held at the "Tatiana Dimou" cultural space with the aim of bringing out the origins of the contemporary visual language more clearly.
In the exhibition "Writing and Reading III" the participants are: Panagiotis Vorrias, Elias Kafouros, Nikos Moschos, Elpida Panonidou and Kostas Pappas.
The five artists co-exist together for the first time, having as a cohesive element the presentation of occasionally imaginary landscapes and worlds, the sense of doubt, through visual phenomena, about what is real and what is imaginary. All of this puts the viewer in a permanent process of interaction and search for a personal perception of the images he receives.

The show is curated by Kleomenis Kostopoulos

Eighteen paintings by Nikos Moschos, coming from Private Collections as well as the Zoumboulakis Galleries along with two newly-created works of sculpture, will be on display between June 27th and September 26th, 2021 at Bazeos Tower in Naxos. About the exhibition, entitled "Animated Connotations", art historian Francesco Piazza wrote: "If modern painting is marked by a return to representation at the expense of both abstract and conceptual art, we owe it to artists like Nikos Moschos, who shapes his notion of art through a new visual idiom that is unpredictable and filled with dramatic and mature symbolism.
Moschos' art pounces on the senses like a punch in the gut or a flash in the eye. It is mesmerizing, anaesthetizing; it stirs up memory and all the senses. Each of his works contains the intention to describe forms and figures, starting with their cognitive process and their ability to create new worlds through global stereotypes—the reality from which we all originate and which we all believe to know.
The modular illustrative narrative countervails the immobility of the painting, automatically prompting the human perception to set the images observed in motion, giving rise to thoughts and feelings, while also infiltrating global archetypes through one’s own personal language.
The exhibition is an integral part of the program of the 21st Naxos Festival, which has been staged every summer at and around the Bazaios Tower, a listed 17th-century monument in the inland of Naxos. The Festival is carried out under the auspices and with the support of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports.
