FokiaNou Art Space celebrates its four-year anniversary with a group show of artists who have had exhibitions in the space. Under the name Fo Kia Nou 24/7, the endeavor was started by Blanka Amezkua as an alternative project space in an old apartment in the center of Athens, at a time when such independent spaces were rare. Over the years projects of all kinds have taken place, with artists of various backgrounds collaborating on creative efforts. After their joint show, “Distant Nature”, in April 2016, two artists, Mary Cox and Panagiotis Voulgaris decided to take over the space upon Blanka Amezkua’s departure in the fall of the same year. Since then Fokianou Art Space has hosted exhibitions, workshops, talks and projects, while promoting synergy and a sense of community between Greek and foreign artists.This exhibition revisits those artists, who are for the most part showing new work.
Participating artists: Blanka Amezkua, John Bicknell, Mary Cox, Irini Doukas, Angeliki Douveri, Sarah Ettlinger, Extra-Conjugale, Apostolos Fanakidis, Chrisostomos Galathris, Roxani Giannou, Sarajane Kidd Leone, Loula Levendi, Ioanna Terlidou, Marios Trichas, Ira Vlahaki, Panagiotis Voulgaris, Kiveli Zachariou.
