NEON invites you to the opening of City Project 2019 on Monday, September 16th at 7pm, presenting Stock Images by Panos Kokkinias, the first photographer to be commissioned for the annual site-specific contemporary art initiative.
This exhibition, curated by Shoair Mavlian, Director of Photoworks, presents the city of Athens from a variety of vantage points. In the spirit of urban exploration, the exhibition will be installed in an abandoned and disused office space at 4 Sofokleous St., in an area often referred to as the ‘commercial triangle’ of the city, in a space which has been left largely unchanged since it was last used a decade ago.
Kokkinias’ project Stock Images, takes the fabric of the city itself as its starting point, exploring the many facets of the complex urban metropolis and the people who reside within it. The new body of work, made up of more than 20 images, will be on display together for the first time to reveal a collective portrait of Athens, reflecting on both the realities and fictions of contemporary urban life. With a background rooted in the history of street photography and documentary practice, Kokkinias is best known for his large-scale photographic tableaux.
