Yorgos Prinos lives and works in Athens. Optics Is Ethics is his first solo exhibition and consists entirely of new works and photographs that have never been shown before. Last year, Prinos had his first international solo presentation with the gallery at Frieze London, and participated in the Athens Biennale. He was also part of the collective Depression Era (2013 - 2019) – a group of artists who documented the urban and social landscape of the crisis in Greece. The collective showed widely, with exhibitions in Samos (2019) Athens (2019, 2014), Philadelphia (2019), Amsterdam (2018), Basel (2017), Thessaloniki (2017), Paris (2014), Budapest (2014), and Brussels (2014). Alongside his artistic practice, Prinos has co-edited several catalogues, contributed to various books, and co-curated major exhibitions in Greece and abroad.
