"Travelling Art" in Sparti

"Travelling Art" in Sparti

ARTOGETHER-Art of People with and without Disabilities (former VSA Hellas), in cooperation with the Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation (PIOP), presents the temporary exhibition "Travelling Art" on Wednesday 9 June, at the Museum of the Olive and Greek Olive Oil in Sparti. The exhibition is the outcome of the two-year programme "Travelling Art", realized thanks to an exclusive donation from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) and supported by the Career Office of the School of Fine Arts and the Society of Greek Writers.


The exhibition "Travelling Art" comes to give an answer to the question "How would it be if art were to travel free, beyond conventions, prejudices, boundaries and obstacles?" The works by 25 artists with disabilities converse with the manuscripts of 25 writers who were inspired by them. The aim of this fruitful approach is the wider promotion of the work of artists with disabilities and the equal footing of artistic creation by people with and without disabilities as well as the cooperation between them. The exhibition was first presented at the Historical Archives of PIOP in Athens and then "travelled" to the Rooftile & Brickworks Museum in Volos and the Silversmithing Museum in Ioannina.


The exhibition is accompanied by the collector's edition Travelling with Art, published through a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). The works of art, the manuscripts and the thoughts of their creators are expressed in this publication.
