State of Concept
State of Concept is the first non-profit gallery in Greece. It was founded in 2013 by art critic and curator Iliana Fokianaki and is based in Athens.
State of Concept is an independent platform operating as a gallery with a yearly programme, that aims to be a bridge between Athens and the international contemporary art scene. With its main aim being to introduce international artists that are not widely known and easily accessible to Greek audiences as well as to showcase one Greek artist through a solo exhibition, it hosts four exhibitions per year: one solo exhibition of a Greek artist, two solo exhibitions of international artists and one group exhibition curated by an international invited curator. Parallel to its exhibition programme, State of Concept organises a variety of events and projects including talks, screenings and workshops for children.
Apart from its exhibitions and events, State of Concept is operating as a space for free artist consultation, where young students and graduates of Greek art schools can receive feedback, guidance and help in order to further their work, enhance their portfolio and CV, and decide their next artistic steps.
