As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to affect the arts, Ngallery continues to explore the new challenges for artistic creation and mobility, by presenting the second edition of The New Together project. The exhibition of the collaborative work “Empirical Reality” opens on Sunday, September 12, and it will run until Sunday, October 10, 2021.
Vocalist Anna Pangalou, natural sciences educator Georgina Spyres and artist Ryat Yezbick remotely collaborated throughout the pandemic to create “Empirical Reality”. They used the element of water as a vehicle to observe the interconnections of our universe and the tenuous nature of our species. They created a collection of works focusing on water and its properties that connect them to nature, to each other, to their beliefs and to their conscious and subconscious intentions. “Empirical Reality” invites the viewer to consider our relationship to water as a life force, and our permeable relationship with all it contains. During the pandemic lockdown, contemporary music composer and sound researcher Nicoleta Chatzopoulou’s Ngallery made an open call for participation in an art project with the sole prerequisite being long-distance collaboration. Composers, musicians, artists, performers, directors, writers, scientists and intellectuals from all over the world were invited and challenged to create collaborative works, overcoming the impossibility of physical presence in the same space. The first exhibition of works created for The New Together project was presented with big success at Ngallery in October 2020, raising a heated and necessary conversation about the (post-)pandemic arts landscape. The New Together project aims to explore and define the new conditions of artistic creation, the new needs for communication between creative people and new possibilities for the presentation and diffusion of art.
The exhibition “The New Together Vol. II” will be open by appointment only from Sunday, September 12 to Sunday, October 10, with free admission.
For appointments during the exhibition opening hours (Monday to Friday: 10 am-2 pm & 5-8 pm – weekends: 12-5 pm) please contact us by email at [email protected].

The exhibition will be accompanied by parallel actions with the artists, which will be announced on Ngallery social media.
