With the success of our current gallery throughout 2019/20 we have launched a new exhibition space in 2021 in the Athens artists quarter, Metaxourgeio. This has given us the opportunity to transform the upper spaces above the gallery into a residency space, self contained studio and exhibition space.

The residency will consist of a 4 week running program with accommodation where you can live and work from the Siilk Building in Athens, Greece. Use the mezzanine level of the gallery for a show for the 4 weeks or use it like an open studio, run workshops, talks, utilize the space in whichever ways you want.

At the end of each 4 weeks there will be an opening night showcasing the works produced in that time featured at the main Silk Gallery space for an additional 4 weeks. Your works will also be featured in our online gallery for the new website of our mother gallery - www.siilkgallery.com. We will also do a feature / interview with you leading up to the residency.

We can supply any documents to accompany any external funding sources the artists may apply for.

Summer in Athens

Share

Eligibility:

Every summer our thought is on vacation, the sea and the cool breeze on an island. But what happens when this thought does not come true and we live in Athens? Many times we observe the increased movement on the balconies of apartment buildings, the love of people for the invention of air conditioning, but also the relaxation, perhaps in the seaside of Athens.

Athens is an urban area mainly, where you meet many different people. Some have the opportunity to enjoy their summer in a relaxed way and some do not, while many of them work.

We call artists world to identify with the public of Athens and to depict daily snapshots in various areas of the city. The aim of the exhibition is to promote, both in a realistic and humorous way, mainly through photos and sketches, the neighborhoods from different areas of Athens in the summer, drawing inspiration from the rising temperatures, the consequences of climate change, but also the economic facilities, or difficulties one faces today.

Information & Guidelines

- The exhibition will be presented online from 22 September to 22 October.

- Each creator or group is invited to submit up to three projects for selection.

- The deadline for submission of projects expires on September 5, 2021.

- The application should include: a. Digital photos of the works - Project titles, dimensions, technique, year of creation, short description, words-phrases that will accompany the works | b. Short CV in text format (up to 100 words) and photo (optional) | c. Address, contact numbers, email, social media
