ARTOGETHER - Art by People With and Without Disabilities (formerly VSA Hellas) in collaboration with the Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation (PIOP) present the exhibition "Travelling Art" at the Historical Archive of the PIOP in Tavros (2 Doridos Street & 14 Eirinis Ave.).
The exhibition, the outcome of a two-year program of the same title, provides its own answer to the question "How would art be if it travelled freely, beyond conventions, prejudice, limits and obstacles?". The works of 25 artists with disabilities are juxtaposed to the manuscripts of 25 writers, who were inspired by the former. The aim of this fruitful approach is to showcase for a broad public the work of artists with disabilities, the equally-valued art of artists with and without disabilities, and the collaboration between them. The "Travelling Art" program is implemented through an exclusive donation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) and is supported by the Career Office of the Athens School of Fine Arts and the Society of Greek Writers.
After Athens, the exhibition will "travel" successively to several museums of the PIOP Network from February to June 2020; specifically, to the Rooftile and Brickworks Museum (Volos), the Silversmithing Museum (Ioannina), the Museum of the Olive and Greek Olive Oil (Sparti) and the Museum of Marble Crafts (Tinos).
At all of its selected stops, the exhibition will be accompanied by art happenings performed by members of the ARTOGETHER teams and by experiential workshops for people with and without disabilities.
The exhibition is also featured in the Collectible Album "Travelling Art" of which the issue was made possible by a donation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). Its pages present the works, manuscripts and thoughts of the artists.
The exhibition at the Historical Archive runs from October 24 to November 1, 2019.
Opening hours: Monday-Friday 09:00-17:00; closed on holidays.
Entrance is free of charge.
