About the exhibition:
The theme of the exhibition is an open invitation to host the works of artists from abroad who either chose to live and create in Greece, or artists interested in our country’s cultural and artistic scene.
The curators documented and exhibit 50 works of contemporary art by artists who  are not part of the trodden rut of artistic production with traditional or modern Greek references and roots BUT bring their own cultural and energetic experiences from different places of origin as well as their inspirations.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And nine years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
