Art exhibition at Athens airport
22.07.2019 - 31.12.2019
Teachers, artists and designers, along with their students, are exhibiting works at the Athens airport and have created a joint theme "The Journey".
Real, imaginary or figurative, travel transmits the element of wandering and discovery. For artists and designers, the project production process is often a journey. As for the projects, they can in turn transfer the spectators to fantastic venues in time.
The area of Athens International Airport is ideally suited to the subject, as the airport is intertwined with the concept of travel and is a "crossroad" for travelers from all over the world.
Although everyone - teachers and students - takes advantage of the unique features of digital imagery, the different approach to each, combined with each artist's personal style and references, comprises a diverse set of works that reflect a contemporary reality, both artistically and psychologically.
Portraits of intercultural travelers, realistic travel images, illustrations of places where the past unites with the present, universal worlds, travel objects and vehicles, reflect travel's digital searches with video animation, visual art and design objects.
