locus athens commissioned Christoforos Marinos to curate a series of conversations with artists based in Greece at their new space TAVROS. TAVROS is a non-profit space, founded by locus athens in October 2019, which aims to respond to the social and political circumstances around us through dialogue, listening and learning.
Crossings is a series of conversations curated and coordinated by art historian Christoforos Marinos held once every month (from February till June 2020) with artists based in Greece from different generations. The invited artists will have the chance to exchange views, share references and obsessions. In turn, the audience, will have the opportunity to delve with greater depth into what drives artistic practices. Each conversation will be based on the media used and the thematics that the respective artists touch upon.
Crossings #1 “Painting Isn’t Enough For Me”
Painting is the subject of the first conversation between four acclaimed artists: Apostolos Georgiou, Ilias Papailiakis, Eftihis Patsourakis and Mantalina Psoma. As the suggestively provocative title suggests, the starting point of this talk is to question the relevance or necessity for painting today.
