The art space Alibi Gallery (Sarri 12), kindly presents the exhibition “Souvenirs d'Athènes - A pop up store”, which will take place from July 5 (opening date) and throughout the summer season.
Athens-based artists, after many years have begun to reinvent the city’s identity, creating a new scene, a feeling of rejuvenation and revival in amidst its own, individual chaos.
The 50+ artists participating in the exhibition "Souvenirs d'Athènes", a pop-up souvenir shop hosted in Alibi Gallery, Monastiraki, in the very centre of Athens itself, are proof of Athens' new, debate-rich and culturally enlightened identity.
What is a souvenir, and how does it connect to art?
If you can project and store a memory in an object, and years later you re-visit the very same time and space you are now in, doesn't it make it a souvenir? Irrespective of size and form, this exhibition will give you fertile ground to create and store your own memories of Athens.
Souvenirs d’Athenes features the work of Greece based artists – both emerging and established – working across mediums and coming from diverse backgrounds to bring colour and a unique view to canvas, postcard, clay, wood, and other materials, offering a piece of Athens to take home that out-does your standard souvenir-offering.
Forever remember your summer days strolling the streets of our lively city with your own souvenir d’Athenes.
