Phoenix Athens Gallery and Residency provides a welcoming space for Greek and international artists, academics and creatives 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 experience with possibilities for networking with local creatives, live-work studios, and a dedicated production facility.


The Villa Exarchia Residency evenly balances craft, theory and social engagement with the community of Athens. 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 residencies packages, or propose conferences, workshops and exhibitions at one of our spaces.
