At the heart of Gramma_Epsilon Gallery our purpose is to connect the present female avant-garde with the climate of experimentation and the female-led emancipatory movements of the 1960s and 1970s. We aim to document the work of the artists of the era, a time characterised by
extraordinary inventiveness and experimental strength, yet of which still little is known.

Anna Esposito


Curated by Paolo Cortese and Francesco Romano Petillo

Gramma_Epsilon Gallery in Athens is pleased to inaugurate on Thursday, March 14th the solo exhibition FUTURANNA dedicated to the groundbreaking Italian artist, Anna Esposito.

Two years after her latest solo exhibition, this exhibition, curated by Paolo Cortese and Francesco Romano Petillo, presents 30 works that date from the 1960s to the early 2000s in which the artist centers her critical gaze towards consumerism and the culture of waste, as demonstrated by the title of the exhibition which refers to Futurama, the famous New York exhibit of 1939.


Through the technique of collage, the use of recuperated materials, and the collection of discarded products and rescued advertising images, Anna Esposito engages her art around the practice of recycling, her refusal of complying with the wastefulness dictated by the dominant mass culture, the reduction of waste, and the repurposing of objects which have been rendered obsolete by the speed of capitalist economy.

Foregrounding her critique against mass production and consumerist entertainment since the early 1970s, her sharp ecological and political commentaries are very much relevant under the scope of today’s gravity regarding climate change, and the necessity of developing a culture of degrowth in order to secure a viable future.

“Mediterranean Disturbances” is a project divided into two distinct exhibitions that create a dialogue around the concept of the Mediterranean, not only as a physical place, a basin between lands and the eternal cradle of civilization, but also as a cerebral space, a metaphor and a virtual space of a future that presents itself today more than ever as uncertain, complete with many pressing problems.

The Lost and Found Goddesses” curated by Paolo Cortese and Rosanna Ruscio, this exhibition collects the work of 10 significant Italian artists, most of them active since the 1970s, years in which the phenomenon of globalization was a science fiction hypothesis.

On the Sea of my Tttttongue” curated by Caterina Stamou, this exhibition features works by 10 young Greek artists whose works engage in a different and reciprocal relationship with the sea, thereby visualising new attitudes, material and cultural gestures.
