ART-ATHINA 2011, 12 - 15 May at Faliro Pavilion (TaeKwonDo)



ART-ATHINA 2011
12 - 15 May, Faliro Pavilion (TaeKwonDo)


ART-ATHINA continues its distinctive mission of promoting art, and in particular contemporary artistic creation, making a keenly-anticipated return with its 17th edition. ART-ATHINA 2011 will take place on 12-15 May at the Faliro Pavilion (TaeKwonDo), widely regarded as the perfect venue for the event.

This year, 58 galleries and 40 cultural institutions will be participating, offering visitors the opportunity to enjoy a panorama of contemporary Greek and international art through the work of more than 300 artists, and also through the exhibits of museums, cultural institutions and art publications. The works of art showcased at the exhibition will attract any potential buyer, since their prices will start from 300 Euros and they will even include works that could form part of museum or large private collections.

ART-ATHINA

According to Alexandros J. Stanas, General Director of ART-ATHINA, “art is a lever for change and progress and it can dynamically contribute to social dialogue, as well as adding colour to everyday life.” A conviction borne out by the fact that last year’s fair attracted approximately 16,000 visitors and, contrary to the prevailing pessimistic financial climate, revitalized the country’s art scene.

Among the Greek and foreign galleries, many have participated in the fair every year and others will be hosted for the first time, a fact that underlines the international profile of ART-ATHINA.
