  • [01] 'Where is the art?' opens in Athens

  • [01] 'Where is the art?' opens in Athens

    With a fresh new look at the artistic process and the relationship between the artist and his public, the exhibition "Where is the art?" kicks off in and around Athens on Tuesday evening at 20:30 with the opening of a central exhibition at Myllerou 22 in Keramikos and the installation of artworks in public spaces throughout the city centre. Organisers have described it as an "interactive artistic experiment" and an "artistic adventure" that coincides with the 2007 Athens Biennial "Destroy Athens".

    The aim of this experiment is to change the viewer's preconceptions about contemporary art that are linked with the way that art is presented as a finished product of the creative process in the environment of a "white cube" that is a museum or a gallery.

    'Where is the art?' intends to present the entire creative process, revealing all its individual stages and the structures that determine it, exposing all the artists' tools (sketches, preliminary work and materials) to public view.

    The 47 artists of different ethnic backgrounds that are taking part in the project will open their studios to the public and give viewers the chance to explore the spaces in which creative work takes place and art is ultimately born.

    At the same time, finished artworks will be installed in public spaces which will inject the element of surprise into the relationship between art and its viewers or passers-by.

    Also part of the project are the 'Bar Station' that opens from noon to midnight at Efpatridon 7 in Gazi on September 12-23 and film screenings on September 24-25 at the ReMap KM theatre on Iasonos Road, Keramikos.

    The opening exhibition at Myllerou 22 will run until September 15, while from September 12 until September 23 the public will also be able to visit the open studios of some 47 artists based in central Athens from 17:00 until 21:00.
