PCAI Talk on sustainable art practices

in the IACCCA OGA Vienna

PCAI attended the IACCCA OGA in Vienna focusing on the local art scene and collecting. During the 4-day event Kika Kyriakakou, PCAI artistic director and IACCCA CSR Task Group leader, was invited to talk about sustainable art practices and art collecting in the framework of climate crisis. The PCAI Art Collection was the first Greek collection to be included in the IACCCA network in 2018. In 2019, PCAI co-hosted the IACCCA OGA in Piraeus and Athens, a trip that included discussions and key notes on corporate art collecting, along with visits and tours to museums, cultural institutions and other art collections in Athens.

IACCCA is an international association that brings together the world’s largest corporate collections of contemporary art, including Fidelity Investments, Fundació Sorigué, La Caixa, Shiseido, Deutsche Bank and others. In addition to meetings, the IACCCA also hosts symposia around contemporary art open to artists, curators, artists and the general public. In 2021, IACCCA organised the Art in the Time of Ecological Disruption symposium in Madrid, an in-depth debate on how the ecological challenges of our era influence artistic practices.The symposium brought together high-profile professionals from the world of culture: artists, curators, scholars, creative producers and representatives of cultural organisations to discuss how art can play a role in imagining new ways of living in our present time.
