ARCAthens Virtual Residency
We are pleased to launch our ARCAthens Virtual Residency program, always featuring two artists, one in Greece, and the other in the Bronx, New York. They will be in conversation for one month posting daily on Instagram. Mediated by curator and ARCAthens Executive Director Aristides Logothetis, the artists will be working with social media as their medium to create a bridge between two vibrant communities during the COVID 19 pandemic. The conversations they make through Instagram which you can follow at @arc_athens will be documented on this site, as well as the culminating public zoom conversation at the end of their residency.
The AVR provides two Artist Fellows the opportunity and support to engage in a creative and productive dialogue during this period of social distancing. The AVR offers a inter-continental conversation between two artists, mediated by a curator, and shared openly by others. We intend to bridge the constraints imposed by the pandemic by inviting artists to challenge their isolation, freely discuss their hopes and fears, and find insights and resources through a compelling exchange of ideas.
