An exhibition focusing on the concept of durability that for the first time brings together the ports of Piraeus and of Thessaloniki; two of the most important ports of our country will be united through contemporary art in a symbolic manner.
From June 5th to September 23rd 2018, the two cities are bridged together on the occasion of a unique venture dedicated to video art and environmental awareness, through works of prominent international artists, that directly or suggestively, refer to urban, environmental and social resilience and sustainability.
The launch of this co-operation will take place on the World Environment Day on Tuesday, June 5, 2018 at 19:30, at the PCAI headquarters in Piraeus (24 Dervenakion str.) through an art event, a unique prelude to the Thessaloniki exhibition. PCAI director, Athanasios Polychronopoulos, and exhibition curator and Thessaloniki Center of Contemporary Art director, Syrago Tsiara, will talk about their cooperation and the concept behind the fortcoming show whereas visitors will be able to enjoy video art works and installations from the organisation's collection exhibited at the PCAI headquarters for the first time.
