ONE ARTIST A WEEK
ONE ARTIST A WEEK questions the dynamic of quickly changing trends, topics and "fashions" in the international art world and asks how each of the participating artists individually responds to this development.
The one-week residency + exhibition program addresses artists who want to develop and present their work in Athens following an intensive creative and learning process.
ONE ARTIST A WEEK not only offers (shared) accommodation and (solo) exhibition space in the center of Athens, it also supports the artists with press, media and communication work, and helps to set up the exhibition/presentation at the end of the week.
