Snehta residency

Snehta residency

Description 

Snehta promotes and facilitates local and international artists through its residency and exhibitions programmes in Kypseli, Athens. Residents are selected through an open call. Snehta also organises a series of exhibitions, talks and workshops in response to topics that critically engage with Athens’ identity as a historical and social center. Snehta stands for the name of the City of Athens written in reverse. This name metaphorically suggests that the artists involved are to rediscover Athens by reading and translating it alternatively, observing and using the city’s local, social and cultural dynamics. The organizers emphasise for the programme and the resident artists to bring a renewed awareness of Athens to the audience through the works produced exhibitions and events. These should relate to and critically stimulate Hellenic, inter-European and global audiences, redefining Athens in a global context. Snehta fosters practices that clearly delineate the implication between artist, work and audience, supporting creative practices that strongly regard the experience or involvement of the community in the artwork or within the organisation.

Outcome 

The residency programme (2 months) culminates in a group exhibition at the end of each residency block showcasing the work of the three resident artists. Artist talks, performances and other spin off events or happenings are welcome. The Snehta in-house curator will be in dialogues with the artists to arrange those.
