Athens School of Fine Art
Vilnius Academy of Fine Art
In June 2022, Phoenix Athens hosted Vilnius Academy of Fine Art graduates: Egle Zostautaitè & Emilija Visinskaite.
The artists conducted a comparative analysis of environmental factors in both Vilnius and Athens, and how these contrast with post-modern para-surrealist narratives such as those of Camus and René Daumal.
Their mentorship program would culminated with the exhibition "What you told me."
In Fall 2021, Phoenix Athens collaborated with faculty member Erifil Veneria and students from Athens School of Fine Art for a tour and presentation of Phoenix Athens.
The presentation familiarised students with the operational duties and roles of alternative spaces and galleries in Athens and how these spaces represent career opportunities for artists, curators and other actors in the arts.
In 2020 Phoenix Athens collaborated with professor Stefan Riebel and students from H.G.B Fine Arts Academy in Leipzig, Germany. The students conducted a survey of Athenian artist-run spaces, museums and other cultural venues in order to enhance their knowledge of art and curating.
This research would culminate with the exhibition: Running Athens. In addition to showcasing artwork inspired by the unique landscape of Athens and its art spaces, the exhibition featured talks and discussions about the contrasting paradigms of the creative ecologies in Germany and Greece.
The exhibition Running Athens featured works by: Anabelle, David Behrens, Tobias Fabek, Elisabeth L. Kraus, Haiguang Li, Tianxu Liu, Mandy Möbes, Kay Lotte Pommer and Johannes Unger.
The American College of Greece
In 2019 Phoenix Athens collaborated with students of the American College of Greece-Deree for the exhibition: "Memory of Hominina."|
Participating artists included Sherouk Elabasi, Sabri ElCharif, Angelos Lignos, Aliki Ntounia, Alexandreia Papageorgeiou, Eirini Souma, Angeliki Tsiati and Natalia Tsouloucha.
