Occupy Atopos #The_Dreamer exhibition has been extended until Thursday, July 14 due to its success. On the occasion of its completion a finissage party will take place in Atopos’ yard on the same day.
About the exhibition
While participating in the Occupy Atopos artist residency The Dreamer redefined the UNLOCKED exhibition and its subject through his distinctive, colorful, pop style and transforms the Atopos cvc building into his personal dreamland. Using the aluminum offset printing plates of the UNLOCKED publication as his canvas the Greek artist attempts to remould the premises of Atopos cvc with his unique artistic approach. The exhibition is curated by Atopos’ Artistic Director, Vassilis Zidianakis.
