Walking Backwards - exhibition opportunity in Athens

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Snehta (Athens in reverse)

Snehta’s mission is to actively strengthen the artistic production and revitalize the local scene by bridging Athens with international creatives that share a focused enthusiasm to research in the city. Moreover partnering artists, curators and projects undertaken by Snehta aim to creating new readings under which the city is perceived and experienced.

For the past two years Snehta has been making gradual stepts to establishing  two additional core activities – its physical / online shop and an educational program run by Athens based artists. Monies generated by those activities will fund a range of new opportunities that will be announced within the following year. Amongst those - Walking backwards is Snehta’s first funded exhibition opportunity open to emerging artists from Greece and other countries

Overview

“Walking Backwards”  was inspired by the Greek figure of the soothsayer Tiresias, appearing in Dante’s Divine Comedy. Soothsayers are fortune tellers, or people who claim to be able to predict the future. In Canto XX, Dante and Vergil encounter these souls, forced to walk with their heads for ever facing backwards.

The calls aim is to bring artists attention to past ideas and juxtapose those with our present condition. We are looking for emerging contemporary practitioners that will demonstrate a genuine interest in the social context of Athens and who can engage with it critically by challenging social norms and taboos. We are looking for creative practitioners who demonstrate elements of experimentation through their artistic practice. Applying artists should demonstrate an interest in the local community of Kypseli and maintain a gregarious approach to potential connections with local artists and organisations.The call is non medium specific.
