FACES + MASKS
Presented in conjunction with Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival

The Hellenic Museum is thrilled to present Faces + Masks, a photographic series from Greek artist Nikos Vavdinoudis.

This series features modern costumed practices and obscure, fascinating rituals of eight rural villages in Northern Greece that have their origins in ancient Dionysian celebrations.

These ancient festivities are now celebrated during the Christian holiday of Epiphany and the Baptism of Christ and the particular practices of these villages are known for their elaborate, animalistic costumes.

The subsummation of ancient or pagan festivals into newer religious ones is a practice adopted by many religions; thereby allowing the dialogue between the ancient past and the present to remain virtually unbroken.

This is part of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival.
