NEON CITY PROJECT 2017 takes place in a neoclassical residence in the center of Athens. Kostis Velonis’s A Puppet Sun highlights the history and significance of the site while simultaneously addressing new and unexpected relations between the exhibition space and works of art created in its distinct environment.
A Puppet Sun is the largest individual presentation of Velonis’s work to date and is curated by Vassilis Oikonomopoulos, Assistant Curator, Collections International Art, Tate Modern, London.
CITY PROJECT is an initiative for public art and the city, conceived and commissioned annually by NEON to a Greek artist. NEON aims to activate public and historical places through contemporary art, contributing to the interaction of art, society and the city.
