Info about the gallery:

SIILK is situated in the Exarchia / Neapoli area of Athens, Greece. The center of art and culture in Athens, it has a thriving arts scene and community. Exarchia has an edgy alternative vibe, its streets decorated with politically charged murals and lined with anarchist bookshops and stores selling rare vinyl and vintage antiques. Bars and clubs host live music, including rembetika, jazz and punk acts. For night life and the arts, entertainment and contemporary culture it is the place to be in Athens, Greece. Neapoli is the more affluent, hipster and young professionals place of choice in the city, and our gallery is located right between these two areas.
