ARCAthens Virtual Residency
ARCAthens Virtual Residency program features three Fellows: a curator and the two artists they select, one in Greece, and the other in the Bronx, New York. The artists will be in conversation for one month posting daily on Instagram. Mediated by the curator, the artists will be working with social media as their medium to create a bridge between the 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 a Curatorial Fellow and two Visual Art Fellows the opportunity and support to engage in a creative and productive dialogue during this period of social distancing. We intend to bridge the constraints imposed by the pandemic by inviting curators and artists to challenge their isolation, freely discuss their hopes and fears, and find insights and resources through a compelling exchange of ideas.
