Quarantine exhibition – Space 52


“Quarantine Exhibition” is a virtual exhibition during fragile times. The COVID-19 pandemic changes our lives significantly day after day. Despite the current crisis, art is demonstrating its force. In April, after lockdown measures were put in place around the world, our immediate impulse was to bring together artists, friends, peers and professionals from any geographic location, with no limits on age, nationality, or career stage, through the format of a truly open, open call. The artists were motivated to submit a statement and an artwork in any medium of their choice, transmitting their immediate impressions during quarantine.

Paying tribute to the solidarity shown by artists and institutions, at a time when art is suffering fully from the effects of a global, economic and social crisis, it became apparent to us that this time of confinement could also become a period of openness through culture. It is the right moment to strengthen the links between artistic creation and society. As the challenges we are living require far-reaching cultural policies, it will be necessary to listen to the voices of artists worlds in all their diversity.

An exceptional international committee voluntarily selected the artists:

Sotirios Bahtsetzis, Independent Contemporary Art Curator, Professor in Art History, based in Athens, Greece, Dionisis Christofilogiannis, Visual Artist and Professor at the American College of Greece, Founder of Space52 based in Athens, Greece, Lydia Pribisova, Curator and an Art Historian, Managing Editor for Flash Art Czech & Slovak Edition, based in Bratislava and Nicolas Vamvouklis, Visual artist and Curator, Director of K-Gold Temporary Gallery and Curator at Galleria delle Prigioni, based in Venice.
