ABOUTKappatos Gallery was founded in 1991 by Gerasimos Kappatos. The gallery is actively committed to the research, development, and presentation of influential contemporary art exhibitions. Kappatos gallery is best known for its critical contribution to contemporary art in Greece and has presented innovative art events in public venues and international art fairs.
The gallery aims to introduce to the Greek public acclaimed international artists such as: Marina Abramovic, Lynda Benglis, Louise Bourgeois, Phil Collins, Martin Creed, Nasos Daphnis, Jan Dibbets, Rebecca Horn, Roni Horn, William Kentridge, Kai Schiemenz, Santiago Sierra, Penny Siopis, Theodoros Stamos.
Furthermore, Kappatos gallery is committed to the promotion of emerging artists. The gallery organises and curates the historic annual exhibition, entitled “Rooms,” in collaboration with established curators and art-historians, that aims to present talented emerging artists that haven’t yet presented their work at solo exhibitions.
The gallery is located at the historic centre of Athens (560m² venue) and has launched the first official Art Residency supported by a European fund (NFRS) and the programme Publicscapes: Art and Curatorial Practice in the Public Sphere. The residency aims to promote international exchange of practice and knowledge in the arts (visual and sound art, architecture, performance) and to investigate points of intersection between the arts and the public sphere by means of public interventions and educational programmes.
