Paratoxic Paradoxes, an exhibition organized by Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative (PCAI) and the Benaki Museum, will open its doors to the public on Wednesday 22nd of March 2017. The exhibition is the first public presentation of a capsule of eleven original art works created through commissions to international artists by the cultural, nonprofit platform Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative (PCAI) and curator Nadja Argyropoulou. The project, which began two years ago and is now presented through this exhibition, should be considered, to a certain extent, as part of the global response and mobilization of artists, theorists, curators, scientists, activists, creative practitioners in the face of climate-change tipping points and their connection to every aspect of contemporary life.
The participating artists are: Loukia Alavanou, Sophia Al Maria, Korakrit Arunanondchai, Vasilis P. Karouk, Anja Kirschner, Eva Kotatkova, Saskia Olde Wolbers, Eva Papamargariti, Agnieszka Polska, Mika Rottenberg, Wu Tsang. Talks by international speakers who work on the debate around political ecology are organized and will be announced soon, while a specifically designed online platform, a catalogue and an educational program will extent the exhibition’s content. Please visit PCAI for updates.
