Art - Athina 2015
This year the International Meeting of Contemporary Art “Art-Athina 2015” celebrates its 20th edition! The greatest art event in Greece is to open at the Faliro Pavilion (Taekwondo Stadium) on Thursday 4 June and will run through Sunday 7 June. Instituted by the Hellenic Art Galleries Association in 1993, “Art-Athina” is organised for the third consecutive time by EuroΜare. The exhibition is under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture, Education & Religious Affairs and the Municipality of Athens.
The 20th “Art Athina” confirms its endurance, firmly established in the art-loving publicʼs collective conscience, as one of the highly anticipated as well as most influential events in the field of contemporary art.
At the core of the show are the participating Greek and foreign art galleries whose presence reflects the artistic orientation of our time; they present to art lovers and the general public a selection of the current artistic production and highlight the latest trends and preoccupations that prevail on the international art scene. Moreover, cultural institutions like museums, foundations, art publishers and media add to a comprehensive picture of the artistic landscape of our time.
It is worth noting the eventʼs constantly increasing visitorship, with last yearʼs “Art-Athina” attracting 35,000 visitors (compared to 18,000 in previous years). The aim for this year is for the number of visitors to exceed the 40,000 mark.
The anniversary event of “Art-Athina 2015” comes at a time of strong cultural activity in our city. The opening of the National Museum of Contemporary Art, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC), the Basil & Elise Goulandris Foundationʼs Museum of Contemporary Art and a string of collaborations with foreign institutions as a result of Documenta 14: “Learning from Athens” – all these events mark the beginning of a new age in the cultural development of Athens at all levels.
The Parallel Programme of “Art-Athina 2015” will centre on Greece as the crossroads that links Europe, the Balkans, the Black Sea and the Middle East — a location of great importance on many levels, including that of contemporary art.
