Mission: The Non-Profit organization Pantheon and Kappatos Gallery, an influential space for contemporary art in Athens, is offering visual artists, curators and collectors the possibility to participate in its new residence program. By bringing international artists from a wide range of disciplines—including curators and collectors – our program enables the exchange of ideas and approaches that help catalyze new cultural and social perspectives.
Located in the historical centre of Athens, overlooking the Parthenon, the program supports artistic research and production for art professionals from around the world and will select established and emerging artists to share a live/work space for a six-week programme marked by intimate studio visits with, and public lectures by, distinguished leaders in contemporary art and curation and to exhibit for the following four-weeks at the Exhibition Space.

Located at the center of Athens, the studio and artists’ flat will connect participants in our program with the Athenian art scene.
