G Gallery welcomes the Center for Creative Work (CCW) at the Honors College, University of Houston, for a presentation of Dionysia 2013. Dionysia 2013 performs Ilium, an adaptation of Homer’s classic tale of war and suffering, the Iliad.
To coincide with Ilium, G Gallery has commissioned a collection of paintings inspired by Homer’s epic poem. Installed in the gallery where the performance takes place, these paintings serve as a backdrop to the theatrical production itself, prompting contemplation of how the ancient Greek text is applicable in the modern era of pervasive and seemingly never-ending war.
