Aegeanale is an international art and culture platform established in 2012 that welcomes artists and visitors from all over the world to a summer of discovery and inspiration to the majestic Aegean Sea. Its fundamental goals is to highlight the Aegean as region of inspiration, creativity and intercultural dialogue as also to map once more, the archipelago as a complex of destinations with cultural interest. Aegeanale’s program is constructed upon two different focus points: The first focus point concerns a series of international artistic projects from the contemporary art scene, which travels in several locations of the Aegean Sea, constructing tourist routes of cultural interest. The second focus point concerns a arts residency program in several islands of the Aegean, transforming the region to a unique “open-air gallery”, which will be inaugurated in summer 2015. The general organization of Aegeanale is under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism and has obtained the cooperation of important bearers of culture and tourism as Biennial Foundation.
The art and culture platform Aegeanale inaugurates this year’s program in cooperation with the curator Dr Sozita Goudouna in Myconos and Tinos islands with the artistic program Kivotos Art Projects which started in 2012 and the program Art Dovecotes which will make its opening in July 17 of 2015.
Kivotos Art Projects and Art Devecotes have an avant garde program of contemporary art with artworks of established artists who use different means as painting, sculpture, photography, video art, multimedia, installations.
The group show of Kivotos Art Projects is hosted from June to October 2015 at the exhibition space of Hotel “Kivotos” in Ornos, Myconos and the group show of Art Devecotes is hosted at the exhibition space of the House Complex “Diles and Rinies” at Tinos island, constituting its main program, which will be accompanied by musical and theatrical events of the Tinos Festival.
The ambition of Kivotos Art Projects and Art Devecotes is to reclaim the achievements of the contemporary greek art depending on the particular physiognomy of Myconos, Tinos and the Cyclades and to contribute to a creative conversation between art and tourism, by strengthening culturally Greece.
