Phoenix Athens Gallery and Residency provides Greek and international artists, academics and creatives with a welcoming space in central Athens to develop and exhibit their artwork. Now in its fifth year, the project features two large and well-lit gallery for artists to showcase and sell their work, and meet with other creatives in Athens. The project is unique in that it offers artists an opportunity to do develop their practice and connect with the larger global community.

 

    The Villa Exarchia Residency is an opportunity for artists, academics and creatives to immerse themselves in the vibrant culture of central Athens, and hone their practice within the working-class neighbourhood of Exarchia. The residency provides a well-rounded and inclusive experience with possibilities for networking with local creatives, individual live-work studios, and a dedicated production facility. The residency program evenly balances craft, theory and social engagement. Through close collaborations with the community and artists alike, we aim to demonstrate how art and design can transform societies and individuals through exciting and tangible new perspectives.

Creatives, curators and academics are warmly encouraged to apply for our one of our residency packages, or propose conferences, workshops and exhibitions in one of our spaces.

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

Our current artist in residence is Eva Kelly.


Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Kelly’s illustrations act as vignettes of life, time and space that communicate authentic narratives.

After two creative residencies in Red Hook (2018) and another in Tokyo (2019), Eva will capture and report this time her own story of the vibrant city of Athens. 


​Stay tuned for an exhibition and workshops with Eva Kelly in September.
