Snehta Residency was founded in 2012 in Kypseli, as the first Artists Residency in Athens. Based in Kypseli, a neighbourhood interwoven with a variety of social and multicultural elements, Snehta cultivates new relationships and collaborations in the visual arts field both in Greece and abroad. During these ten (10) years of being present in the Athenian cultural scene, Snehta has welcomedmore than one hundred (100) artists and presented more than sixty (60) exhibitions. This December, our annual group exhibition, Kypselian Salon, will return for the fourth (4) consecutive year.

Τhis year we are returning to our physical space, continuing our active involvement and support of the contemporary art scene. Following last year’s virtual exhibition, Kypselian Salon - Back Home, adapted to the restrictions of the pandemic, we successfully managed to preserve our intention to promote the work of more than thirty (30) artists, by surpassing one-thousand (1000) individual online visitors from all over the world. Through this year’s exhibition we wish to collaborate not only with former residents and beloved artists, but also to build new ties with creatives who are either located in the area of Kypseli, or associated with practices that are aligned with the organization’s main mission.

In particular, this year’s Kypselian Salon will be inaugurated on the 21st of December and will run until the 7th of January, counting the participation of more than forty (40) artists coming from Greece and abroad. Utilizing the theme of the “Salon”, we welcome a variety of artistic mediums, from painting and design to sculptures and ceramics, in our final selection of works that will be presented in Snehta’s main space, at I. Drosopoulou 47, in Kypseli. Our audience will have the opportunity to purchase those artworks at truly affordable prices. Part of the profits will be allocated for the support of Snehta’s activities.

During the opening our drink partner will be Strange Brew, a nomadic spirited brewery established in 2015 in Greece, that aims to change the beer’s status quo. Their main goals are the flavour and quality of craft beer, as well as standing up for the community. Furthermore, Entropia Records will be the music supervisor for the event. Entropia is an aural introduction to life’s chaos, in which the listener aims to find and keep the universe from disordering. Their online record store and their physical base in Dimotiki Agora Kypselis is a great meeting place to learn more about great music and engage with the local community.

Kypselian Salon 2021 | Snehta Residency Ετήσια Ομαδική Έκθεση

Τοποθεσία: Main Space, Ι. Δροσοπούλου 47, Κυψέλη

Εγκαίνια: Τρίτη 21/12, 20:00 - 22:00

Διάρκεια Έκθεσης: 21/12/21 - 07/01/22

Ωράριο λειτουργίας: Δευτέρα, Τρίτη, Πέμπτη, Παρασκευή 17.00-21.00, Τετάρτη 10.00-15.00, (Σάββατο, Κυριακή και τις ακόλουθες ημερομηνίες 30/12, 3/1, 6/1 η έκθεση είναι κλειστή)

Το Snehta Residency ξεκίνησε τη δράση του με έδρα την Κυψέλη το 2012, ως το πρωτο Artists Residency στην Αθήνα, σε μια περιοχή με έντονο το στοιχείο της διαπολιτισμικής και κοινωνικής ζύμωσης, καλλιεργώντας νέες σχέσεις και καλλιτεχνικές συνεργασίες στο πεδίο των εικαστικών σε Ελλάδα και εξωτερικό. Μέχρι σήμερα, έχει φιλοξενήσει περισσότερους από εκατό (100) καλλιτέχνες και παρουσιάσει πάνω από εξήντα (60) εκθέσεις και έρευνες στη δεκαετούς (10) συνεχούς παρουσίας του στα πολιτιστικά δρώμενα της πόλης.

Φέτος επιστρέφουμε στον φυσικό μας χώρο, συνεχίζοντας την ενεργή ενασχόληση και υποστήριξη της σύγχρονης εικαστικής παραγωγής, μετά από τη μεγάλη απήχηση που έφερε η περσινή ψηφιακή μορφή του Kypselian Salon - Back Home. Μολονότι ήταν προσαρμοσμένη στους περιορισμούς της πανδημίας, διατηρήσαμε την πρόθεσή μας για την ανάδειξη του έργου περισσότερων από τριάντα (30) καλλιτεχνών ενώ η έκθεση ξεπέρασε τους χίλιους (1000) μοναδικούς διαδικτυακούς επισκέπτες παγκοσμίως. Στην επικείμενη παρουσία του Kypselian Salon επιθυμούμε να έρθουμε σε συνεργασία όχι μόνο με παλαιότερους και αγαπητούς καλλιτέχνες, αλλά να δημιουργήσουμε νέες σχέσεις και συνεργασίες με όσους/ες ζουν και εργάζονται στην περιοχή της Κυψέλης, ή/και συνδέονται με πρακτικές που
