Describe your city's cultural vibe in 3 words.

Versatile – Vivid – Promising

 

Three things to do when you visit Athens.

1. Visit the Ardittos hill behind the Kallimarmaron Stadium (one of the most important ancient greek locations).

2. Visit Piraeus's three ports : the central one, marina Zeas and Mikrolimano.

3. Visit the neigborhood of Mets for a different view of Athens.

 

Your city's soundtrack.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Despair

 

Where does one find you on a Thursday evening?

Gallery or museum preview , cinema or at Heteroclito wine bar (a french spot in Athens).

 

Where is the best area in the city to experience the local art/creative scene?

Inside the artists' studio you find the most intriguing things.

 

Three artists from Athens to watch.

Very difficult to propose only three artists as in Athens we have a very high level of avant-garde art. If I have to mention restrictedly only 3 names that would be the 3 artists that I collaborated with, in a more intensive way, for the 4th Athens Biennale - AGORA (the latest project that I participated): Antonis Pittas, Panos Papadopoulos, and Theo Prodromidis.

 

Next destination

Bordeaux, my dream city, I have been there once and I loved it, epsecially the CAPC Museum of Contemporary Art.
