Forthcoming #1, curated by Louis Papachristou, is the inaugural exhibition in a series of future emergences. It showcases art works, archival material and notes by Athens-based artists. There are myriad paths one could choose to narrate a tale about our recent past and immediate present. The broad scope of creative practices occurring here makes up the sum of a multitude. Looking more deeply at Athens, it is unmistakable that highly edited gestures are being manifested in abundance by above all remaining serene.
Each artist presents fragments or complete works representative of his most recent inquiry. By doing so, Space52 is collective transformed into an inclusive artist-studio, a reservoir of ideas and proposals. The selected works explore equal parts of theory and practice. At a first glance they may appear incongruous and eclectic yet, a closer look will reveal the unanimous overtone of memory, fragility and sensory experiences.
