The Mediterranean Basin Emerging Artists award's finalists exhibition at Artcurial

Published by: HYAM | 5-Jan-2016
Greek art scene is multiplying initiatives, mostly underground, as periods of economic difficulties encourage a creative effervescence. Entitled "erotimatiko", the exhibition will take place from the 8th to the 17th of January 2016. Open to the general public thanks to the guidance of specialized facilitators, it will be enriched by the publication of a bilingual catalogue specifically designed for this occasion. // Presence of the artists on January 8th //
In 2014, HYam, with the Foundation Jean-Luc Lagardère, created an award for emerging artists from the Mediter- ranean: this prize was granted to a young Greek artist, Maria Tsagkari, chosen by an international jury among four finalists. Their work enlightened the diversity of the young Greek Cypriot scene, from the aesthetic and the ideological points of view, with "the past for only future" as a guiding thread.

HYam developed its structure ever since, more so with the opening of a new subsidiary in Greece, necessary to realize in-situ projects in Hydra. The association is now preparing the second part of its project to support young artists from the Mediterranean scene: the showcase of the four finalists' works - Rania Bellou, Marianna Christofides, Maria Tsagka- ri, the laureate, and Athanasios Zagorisios.
