As one of the past artist in residents at SNEHTA I will be exhibiting at the upcoming Art-Athina. This SNEHTA show will be co-curated by Augustus Veinoglou, Becky Campbell and Irini Bachlitzinaki. Six past artists have been invited to exhibit at this art fair who have spent time on the artist in residence program run by SNEHTA. Art-Athina hosts Greek and International galleries and alongside these established galleries they also run a Parallel Programme which is what SNEHTA will be part of. Over the next few weeks the work will be finalised and more information about this art fair will be released. It is an exciting opportunity and I look forward to seeing what the curators and artists bring to the table create for this event.
Launched in 1993 by the Hellenic Art Galleries Association, Art-Athina stands today as one of the longest lasting contemporary art fairs in Europe and as the largest annual visual arts event in Greece. A meeting point for international artistic creation, Art-Athina brings together significant Greek and foreign art galleries, cultural institutions, curators, collectors, art critics and art lovers.
Last year’s Art-Athina was held with great success from 16 to 19 May 2013 at Faliron Pavilion (TaeKwonDo Stadium) and was enthusiastically received by some 30,000 visitors!
Important art galleries from Greece and abroad were joined in harmony by cultural institutions, art publishers and media to present a full picture of the contemporary art scene. A number of important parallel activities reinforced the international character of the event with the participation of a large number of artists with a marked predominance of the younger generation. Concurrently, educational activities and historical retrospectives underlined the social role of Art-Athina.
