ECO OPEN CALL
Phoenix Athens invites artists from all around the world to work on the idea of ecology and organic processes both in art and design. This show intends to bring together the aspects of recycling and ecological consciousness in the form of the artistic practice.
Candidates are required to draw upon both contemporary and ancient archaeological references and get inspired by the physical landscape as well as materials around the city.
Phoenix Athens would like to demonstrate how artists and designers can develop fresh perspectives on ecology in relation to art and design. The artists are further encouraged to explore ways in which their projects can carry forward in forms of economic growth.
The exhibition showcases conferences and practical workshops to demonstrate how art and design are both interrelated and informed by the landscape and ecology of urban and rural Greece. A parallel programme with educational events that celebrate the ecology of Athens will take place throughout the course of this show.
