Constant bombardment of image and media communication has generated an overall confusion regarding our perception on the work of art; raising uncertainties which question and challenge contemporary art. The artist’s physical presence and his work validate as a whole, an entity that is closely evaluated by the art audience. Is then, the art we stand before a masterpiece, an outstanding work that will thrive in the years to come, or will it perhaps be a casualty of visual consumerism and overconsumption? These thoughts, however, are not transient nor ephemeral, they have been argued over a long period of time by artists, theoreticians and the art community. The evolution of technology and the rise of social consumer networks resurface the question regarding the work of art: "Is it important?"
The Revitalization of Athens Commercial Triangle Program, supported by an exclusive donation from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (ISN) with the coordination of the Athens Partnership, is cooperating with the Athens Intersection cultural program, curated by Georg Georgakopoulos and coordinated by Fotini Kapiris.
