TAF's staple exhibition with selected work by ASFA graduates / For the 9th consecutive year
TAF / the art foundation happily presents for ninth consecutive year the group exhibition Studios 2018, opening on Thursday 29 November 2018 at 20.30 and running until 6 January.
Studios is an exhibition cycle that started in February 2011 and initiated by TAF’s curatorial team. Its primary goal was to showcase the work of young emerging artists, while building a bridge with the audience of the city. In this light, the project emerged as an answer to the lack of exhibition spaces and structures to promote their work outside the educational institutions
After 8 years of complex economic and cultural transformations that influenced the local artistic scene and were partly reflected on the artistic map of Athens, the staple project is still evolving and presenting selected works by the Athens School of Fine Arts (ASFA) graduates. By bringing together works that constitute part of their theses, the exhibition aspires to illuminate aspects of the artistic issues that arise during the course at ASFA.
As in previous years, the annual group show creates a dialogue between the selected pieces produced within a given academic framework, without, however, criticizing the institution. Since the beginning of its operation, ASFA has never ceased to be a significant centre of artistic education and production in Greece.
This year Studios presents works by 9 female graduates. The works stand out for both their research starting point and the way in which the expressive media chosen have been used. Each work encapsulates the identity and direction of the artist's practice, while leaving a comment or reflection on its own production.
