You are cordially invited to meet and exchange with our current Fellows Margarita Athanasiou, Nuno Cassola, Alkisti Efthymiou, Margarita Pita, Aristide Rontini, Lito Skopeliti, and Prodromos Tsinikoris on the second Open Day of the Οnassis AiR Tailor-made Fellowships Program on Friday, November 4, 2022 at 19:00–22:00.

During our Open Day, the Fellows will open their studios and share their artistic research and work in-progress through different formats.
Margarita Athanasiou will showcase preliminary visual material of a new poetic film-essay that explores practices of mediumship and spirit possession and the links to female empowerment.
Nuno Cassola will make a mixtape with 1970s music drawn from a letter exchange between his uncle and aunt during the Portuguese dictatorship.
Alkisti Efthymiou will present a short video which is a continuation of her search, through archival family registers, of a vanished Greek lesbian who migrated to Chile in the 1950s. Margarita Pita will create an immersive audio-spatial experience about tracing the wishful images of hope.
Aristide Rontini will present visual materials that trace his choreographic practice.
Lito Skopeliti will present a tiny forest intro lab and her research on urban rewilding. Prodromos Tsinikoris will invite the audience to an encounter with audio clips from the Greek radio broadcast of the Bavarian radio station from the period of Greece’s military junta that will become the basis of a new lecture-performance.

ABOUT THE OPEN DAYS Functioning like an open studio, the Open Days is a series of monthly events that will run throughout the year and are open to the public. This is an opportunity to meet and exchange with our Fellows as well as to learn more about their artistic research through short talks, presentations, workshops or screenings that aim to shed light on their research trajectory and work in-progress. The format of the Open Days is shaped based on the needs and artistic practice of the Fellows each time. Running between September 2022 to July 2023, the Tailor-made Fellοwships is an open-ended program offering time and space, tailored to the individual research needs of each participant.
