Exhibition Virtual Tour:

The Contemporary Greek Art Institute iset presents the exhibition PLATFORM 20, with Niki Papaspyrou, art theorist, Artemis Stamatelou, museologist and Nafsika Savelou, art historian as curators, and the poet Thomas Tsalapatis.


PLATFORM 20 focuses on the work of 20 young visual artists and poets born after 1972, in order to explore the dynamic and uncharted field of contemporary creation in Greece.


The central theme of the exhibition is the explorations of the artists themselves: In what ways they perceive and interpret the current harsh reality in our country? Which experiences trigger their artistic expression?  Through which journeys, they search for collectivity? The pluralism of PLATFORM 20 in theme, style and expressive mediums promotes reflection upon the relationship between art and human life, whether private or public.


The visual art and poetry events of the exhibition, with the participation of the public as well, will be filmed by director Spiros Tsiftsis, in order to serve as an additional means of artistic expression, as an exhibition documentary.
