50 YEARS OF MINAS DESIGNS
"MINAS HAS CHANGED NOTHING, BUT HE HAS CHANGED EVERYTHING."
ELIS KISS, JOURNALIST.
Celebrating his 80th birthday, Minas organised an exhibition at the Benaki Museum in Athens, where he presented eight of his favorite creations inside special displays designed by Minas himself. To accompany this symbolic showcase of a lifetime’s work, Minas collaborated with the Greek photographer Costas Coutayar. Fifty portraits ‘‘on archival paper’’ of unconventional characters, wearing Minas’ creations were presented in the exhibition . The exhibition was complemented by a 96-page catalog that richly illustrates the designer’s work and philosophy.
"THERE IS AN UNBROKEN CONTINUITY IN MY LINES. THEY HAVE ORIGINS AND DESTINATION", MINAS SAYS OF HIS WORK.
