“Until further notice, celebrate everything.”
As the international art market slowly reopens after months of being confined in isolation, trying to adapt to a concept of the “new normal” with fair cancellations, online viewing rooms, and concerns of an impending second wave we wanted to take this opportunity to fully celebrate our former overlooked freedoms and give our visitors the opportunity to really experience the charm of August in Greece with our upcoming exhibition Summer Cravings.
The devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic along with the heinous civil rights violations occurring around the globe put an unprecedented psychological, and physical strain on us all, amplifying the need to be closer to our loved ones and in addition nature. These months in isolation have also given us a time to self reflect, to prioritize and if possible improve upon our lifestyle. With the selection of works in Summer Cravings we want our viewers to escape from their daily realities and experience joy, love, freedom, wellness, as well as sexual liberation.
In order to showcase the diverse realities of social integration in society pertaining to the pandemic and current political climate we at the RedD Gallery will be exhibiting exciting new and older works this summer. Eleven emerging and mid-career artists attempting to depict their varied experiences whilst living in different cities around Europe and Africa during this crisis will be featured in our space in Chania.
