The Contemporary Art Museum of Chania (2017)

"Prossalendi's Britannia" Contemporary Perspective (1 -29 September 2018) all at the Ionian Academy, Corfu.

What do you enjoy about your work?

It's like juggling. One becomes a master at it.

What do you expect your next step to be?

I always aim high. One fine exhibition leads to an even finer one.
