CURRENT Athens is an online platform for the non-hierarchical promotion of contemporary art.
The Hellenic American Union presents the group visual arts exhibition Alone in a Crowd curated by art critic Andrea Gilbert. The exhibition, which is organized in conjunction, with Athens Pride 2023, opens its doors to the public on Thursday, May 25, 2023, 19:00-22:00, at the Hadjikyriakos- Ghikas Gallery of the Hellenic American Union, and will last until June 24, 2023.
Twelve artists examine the concept of individuality in today’s world. As the exhibition’s curator, Andrea Gilbert writes: “ALONE IN A CROWD explores the position of the individual in relation to the social whole. Twelve artists navigate the emotional and physical intersections of the personal and the communal, the private and the public, as well as manifestations of interiority and exteriority – across a tortuous, often inhospitable, terrain. They explore the conditions of solitude, isolation, and alienation to reveal that this apartness is not necessarily, or exclusively, painful. Rather, it provides a space for introspection, independence, self-affirmation, and, finally, the empowerment of uniqueness.”
Over the course of the exhibition, curator Andrea Gilbert will conduct free guided discussions, open to the public, on May 30, 18:00 and on June 20, 18:00. Prior reservations are obligatory at [email protected].
