Art Instead exhibition at the Phoenix Athens gallery
ART INSTEAD is taking the form of an exhibition featuring work by ten Athens-based artists who participated in the ART INSTEAD online program and residency. The works suggest how artists responded to, and were informed by the state of self-confinement and apprehension they experienced during the COVID 19 lockdown.
They reveal to us the familiar vs. the unfamiliar as well as misanthropic interstices between the virtual and the physical world through a focused, purposeful creative lens.
These works are both highly personal and poignant, providing us with insight into ways to counter adversity through creative resilience, common purpose, and unity.
