A unique synthesis of ASFA students in collaboration with Snehta resident artists, will partake in a three day TREASURE HUNT in Kypseli which will result in an ad hoc exhibition (third day) highlighting meaningful concepts and ideas filtered through research, quick exchanges and ad hoc presentations.
The project emerged through discussions between artist and Associate Professor- Director of the 12th Laboratory of ASFA, Painting and Expanded Media Poka Yio and Snehta director artist Augustus Veinoglou to create a common ground where modes of intense artistic exposure can get further reinforced through creative exchange.
TREASURE HUNT aims at demonstrating new readings, uncovering both the hidden and obvious aspects - aka “treasures” of Kypseli and its surrounding neighbourhoods through the emergence of newly conceived semiological arrangements and readings.
With a particular emphasis on the 'peripatetic' and the potentialities of the areas both contradictory and utterly symbiotic states; the TREASURE HUNT here highlights a fundamental aspect of contemporary artistic practice aiming to look at the ‘neighbourhood' not only as a springboard οf ideas but as a Place where artistic expression can become an integral aspect of it.
Artists will use the Snehta gallery as a meeting point, temporary studio and exhibition space.

Open to public: 15th March 18.00-23.00
