State of Concept launches at Art Athina 2013, Booth P16

State of Concept is a non-profit gallery based in Athens founded in 2013. It promotes Greek and international artists in Greece. It will launch at Art Athina on the 16th of May 2013 and will operate in its new space from September 2013.

State of Concept is an independent platform, where Greek artists without a Greek gallery representation will showcase their work through solo and group exhibitions.

Besides promoting Greek artists, State of Concept aims to be a bridge between Athens and the international art scene. It will be hosting two exhibitions of international artists per year, with its main aim being to introduce international artists that are not widely known and easily accecible to Greek audiences through solo presentations.

Apart from its exhibitions, State of Concept is operating as a space for free artist consultation, where young graduates of greek art schools can receive feedback, guidance and help in order to further their work, enhance their portfolio and cv's and decide their next artistic steps, whilst it also organizes projects, screenings, talks and other events.

Director: Iliana Fokianaki
