Athena Standards Residency is a rolling two month studio + residency program in Athens, Greece. We believe Athens offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience simultaneously the vibrant urban culture of a contemporary city and the rich history of an ancient cosmopolitan center.
We are accepting applications for the March - April residency session until January 20, 2018. Please visit our website to apply. We open all two month sessions within the year to applications, and reviews of applicants are conducted on a bi-monthly basis. We are able to accommodate 14 artists per residency session.
The residency program provides the artists with an open format studio space in a repurposed commercial building, located in a bustling neighborhood of coffee shops, bars and restaurants. The studio facility includes storage for works in progress, a kitchenette and lounge, keypad access and a security guard in the evenings, as well as a studio manager to provide assistance five days per week. Artists are provided shared housing with another residency artist in apartments around Athens, within walking distance or an easy transit commute to the studio building.
Additionally, professional development opportunities, including regular studio visits by Art Historian and Curator Elizabeth Plessa and a series of visiting artist talks, has been organized so that by the end of their stay in Athens the ASR residents will have experienced a comprehensive introduction to the contemporary Greek art scene. It is our mission to allow for the exchange of ideas and to provide the framework for lasting professional relationships with international colleagues.
