Join Galini Notti, curator of the exhibition Before and after science for a tour of this year’s NEON City Project 2024 at the National Hellenic Research Foundation.

Before and after science unfolds in the outdoor space, the lobby, and the Library of Science, Technology and Culture “K.Th. Dimaras”. It explores the history, infrastructure, and operation of the National Hellenic Research Foundation: its interior and surroundings, the structural materials and immaterial structures that shape its organisation, and the human relations that fuel its function.

As curator Galini Notti notes, “Touliatou’s works – protocols, services, transmissions, cues, transactions, conditions, and objects – integrate into the Foundation’s operations. Τhey join the space without disturbing its flow. They highlight existing elements and seek ‘fissures’ through which we can enter this sturdy building. They become a graft, underlining the points of attachment as well as the processes by which each organism-ecosystem incorporates something new.”

The exhibition is part of the program City Project 2024, an initiative conceived and commissioned annually by NEON to a Greek artist for the creation of a new work to be exhibited in a public space for a specific time period.
