The Munchies Art Club went to see the cultural space of the Technopolis City of Athens, Greece, in the trendy up-and-coming Gazi neighborhood.

Here we visited the contemporary art exhibition “Eidyllia Odos” a group show presenting works from 33 Greek and international artists.

Maria Marangou, director of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Greece, conceived and curated the group show.

For those of you traveling to Greece in the next days, the show remains open until March 6, 2022.

The artists on view present works that converse the present of our past, without nostalgia, through the manipulation of things they use as raw material.

Materials that have always existed since Ancient Greek times, useful in all kinds of ways such as soil, wool, reeds, fabrics, marble, straw, threads, needles and looms.
