Art-Athina, the International Contemporary Art Fair of Athens, Greece, is back with its 19th edition that will take place 15-18 May 2014 at the Faliro Pavilion (TaeKwonDo Stadium).
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 and attracted some 30,000 visitors.
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.
This year’s focus
In light of the Greek Presidency of the European Union, the main program of Art-Athina 2014 will focus on the key geographical position of Greece, located at the crossroads of Europe, the Balkans, the Black Sea and the Middle East. Greek and international curators will present parallel exhibitions in which artists and art collectors will highlight the long-term cultural and political interactions between these countries.
The 19th Art-Athina art fair will come with a VIP program and many interesting parallel events such as round-table discussions, presentations and exhibitions by both young and established artists.
