An extensive tribute on nudity and how it is captured by the new generation of artists of Tumblr and social media
Atopos Unlocked is the new program of Atopos cvc (Atopos) presented in its neoclassical building on 72 Salaminos st, Metaxourgeio and opens on Wednesday October 29th, 2014.
During this new program, which runs until November 11, Atopos introduces Unlocked, its new research focusing on the depiction of the nude body through the various contemporary digital platforms. It is an extensive tribute / research in progress on nudity and how it is captured by the new generation of artists of Tumblr and social media. The outcome of this research will be presented in a special publication in 2015, in collaboration with la Gaîté lyrique, Paris. Also, during Atopos Unlocked, the organisation "unlocks" its premises to reveal highlights of its collection and some pieces that will be exhibited for the first time.
A key part of the new Atopos Unlocked program is a form of an Open Studio called Occupy Atopos. Through a series of special monthly visits, artists participating in the Unlocked project, will occupy Atopos' Open Studio creating original artworks. Visitors will have the opportunity to witness and explore the research stages of Unlocked, whereas portfolios and projects of the participating artists will be showcased.
Occupy Atopos launches with the participation of Greek-Ukrainian artist David Marinos.
