Art-Athina 2016: The International Contemporary Art Fair of Athens

The 21st Art-Athina, the International Meeting of Contemporary art will open its gates at the Faliro Pavilion (Taekwondo Stadium) on Thursday,May 26 and it will run until Sunday May 29. The Athenian art fair, which attracted almost 40.000 visitors last year, maintains its power but also broadens the interest for the contemporary art.

Initiated by the Hellenic Art Galleries Association in 1993, Αrt-Athina is organised for the fourth consecutive time by EuroΜare. This year, its international fame is established with the new Greek and International participations. It is also worth noting the increase (+25%) in the number of participants compared to 2015.

This year 50 galleries will participate from 13 different countries and 4 continents. The “Platfroms Project@Art-Athina” is one of the most important events at Art-Athina,  headed by artist and curator Artemis Potamianou. Around 50 platforms will be presented from 17 countries and 650 artists.

May 26-29
Taekwondo Stadium, Faliron.
