K-Gold Temporary Gallery presents SUMMER BOUQUET, its ninth summer exhibition curated by Nicolas Vamvouklis — a celebration of contemporary queer culture that explores the relationship between poetry and photography. The poem A Gift by award-winning Andrew McMillan, full of images from everyday moments of physical and emotional exchange, becomes the starting point for the six Greek and international artists participating in the exhibition: Alfred Agostinelli, beraber co., Alexandre Furcolin, Ian Lewandowski, Robin Plus, and Studio Prokopiou. Their works address issues of identity, memory, and desire in familiar but also unexpected ways while underlining the importance of social empowerment, communication, and acceptance. Each artist approaches the longing for love and passion from their unique perspective, affirming that the sense of belonging and understanding are universal and timeless needs we all share. The exhibition SUMMER BOUQUET, part of the satellite program of the Athens Photo Festival 2022, is accompanied by electronic music by Boys’ Shorts (Tareq and Vangelis). In addition, the themes of this artistic research are further explored in the new issue of K-Gold Temporary Gallery's journal THE WILD ONES, which approaches quests and experiments in queer photography through interviews of Christos Mouchas with the participating artists. A parallel exhibition at K-Gold Temporary Gallery presents selected works from its art collection, linked to important moments of its earlier nomadic activity in Lesvos. It includes photographs, drawings, and sculptures by Alvaro Deprit, Saskia Janssen, Charalambos Kourkoulis, András Ladocsi, Christos Mouchas, and Ilias Papailiakis. INFORMATION Opening: Saturday 25 June, 20:00 with a DJ set by Mic Meimaroglou
