Digital “Art Athina” to Kick Off on October 15

ATHENS — Art Athina is to go digital in 2020 and open its web portals on October 15, through the Art Athina Virtual platform (www.aavirtual.gr), promising a different experience to the art-loving public. Art Athina Virtual has been placed under the auspices of the President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou.

Visitors will have the opportunity to "browse" from their computer, tablet or smart phone for free through more than 55 galleries in Greece and abroad and meet the artists and works they propose without any time limit, as Art Athina Virtual will be accessible on a 24-hour basis – with different lighting in the morning and evening – seven days a week until the end of October.

Art Athina Virtual organises Art Athina Week, a week of activities for Greek art galleries that will last from October 13 to October 20, during which galleries will be able to exhibit in their natural spaces the works that will be presented online.
