Costa Navarino: Engaging Art is an innovative art concept aiming to become a permanent platform for contemporary visual arts and an international meeting point for artists and art enthusiasts. During their stay, guests can explore and actively participate in the world of contemporary art.
Four in-residence artists are showcased in 60 picks per minute which is curated by the conceptual artist Dimitrios Antonitsis and supported by the Ileana Tounta Contemporary Art Centre. The artists present in turn their work in solo exhibitions, while at the same time interact with guests and dynamically engage them in the creative process of their new work being created during in situ workshops.
A key element of the exhibition is how two very distinct practices, contemporary art and traditional handicraft, are interwoven and produce this unique combination. The exhibition brings to life this dynamic interaction of artwork amidst a stunning environment. The viewers/participants can develop their own connotations as active observers as well as co-creators.
The participating artists in the exhibition 60 picks per minute, are: Dimitrios Antonitsis (until June 9), Jeffrey Apoian (June 10 – August 4), Konstantinos Ladianos (August 5 – September 8), Dionisis Christofilogiannis (September 9 – October 6).
