Art Athina 2020 Goes Digital Due to Pandemic

ATHENS — The largest annual art institution in Greece, Art Athina, will be available on a digital platform with access for all via the internet as the unprecedented conditions generated by the pandemic have forced the cancellation of Art Athina 2020, which was scheduled to be held at the Zappeion Hall.

The platform Art Athina Viewing Rooms will be presented in the first week of October and will be online until the end of October. It will be also combined by Art Athina Week, a week of events for Greek art galleries on October 8-15, during which the galleries will be able to exhibit the art presented via the internet in its natural environment.
