The Hellenic American Union organized an exhibition of the artist Joseph Kosuth, titled 'Guests and Foreigners, Rules and Meanings (Athens)' at the Hatzikyriakos-Gikas and Kennedy Galleries in the Hellenic American Union. The exhibition curator was Artemis Potamianou. Joseph Kosuth is one of the major figures in the re-conception of the work of art that took place during the 1960s and 70s with the arrival of Conceptual art, which questions art’s traditional forms and practices, as well as the assumptions surrounding them. Kosuth was among the first artists to initiate the use of installations, texts, photography, and appropriation. The installation, ‘Guests and Foreigners, Rules and Meanings (Athens)’, was the latest in one of his most well known series, which has been presented all over the world.
