Our aim with Britannia Works was to introduce Athenians to the multicultural, multi-ethnic, perspectives of the UK art scene today.

Leading international curator, Katerina Gregos, focussed on the openness of contemporary UK to a younger generation of increasingly multi-ethnic artists.

The event exhibited the works of twenty-nine artists in four venues for six weeks.

The artists in the exhibition – the majority of whom were exhibiting in Greece for the first time – presented work in all media and styles, reflecting a variety of concerns from history, politics, social reality and everyday life, to identity issues and the nature of art itself. This exhibition of British art became in itself an act of crossing boundaries and fusing cultures.
