Call for Artists: Summer in Athens

Call for Artists: Summer in Athens

Every summer our thought is on vacation, the sea and the cool breeze on an island. But what happens when this thought does not come true and we live in Athens? Many times we observe the increased movement on the balconies of apartment buildings, the love of people for the invention of air conditioning, but also the relaxation, perhaps in the seaside of Athens.

Athens is an urban area mainly, where you meet many different people. Some have the opportunity to enjoy their summer in a relaxed way and some do not, while many of them work.

We call artists world to identify with the public of Athens and to depict daily snapshots in various areas of the city. The aim of the exhibition is to promote, both in a realistic and humorous way, mainly through photos and sketches, the neighborhoods from different areas of Athens in the summer, drawing inspiration from the rising temperatures, the consequences of climate change, but also the economic facilities, or difficulties one faces today.
