ATHENS VIDEO ART FESTIVAL

   May 19, 2011  

I wonder why we didn’t blog about it last year…Maybe because it was so big an event that I took it for granted that you should have read about it!

So, following Art-Athina weekend, this weekend we will be visiting Athens Video Art festival in Technopolis, Gazi. Athens Video Art Festival is one of the most important events of digital art and new media happening right know in Greece.  And it is not only video artVideo installations, animation, installation art, digital image, performance art, web art will be presented to public by artists around the world.

Also this year, the festival gives new artists the chance to display their handmade work,  by introducing a new section within the Festival called “Hand Over” project. In a specially designed space all the artists’ stands will be displayed creating a audiovisual room of creativity and color. Textiles such as commercial banners, Plexiglas, bags, films and fibers will be given life and utility representing the design of the Festival’s urban style.

Believe me…you will be amazed of  how innovative some people can be…Be inspired! And see you there!
