Since 2017 Art Athina Residency Program invites international artists represented by the exhibiting galleries in the sections Highlights and Feature of the fair, to spend 30 days in Athens. The artists get to know the city and get inspired and create the artworks that will be presented later at the art fair. In the past years, Art Athina has hosted artists from Europe, United States and Australia.
For 2022 Art Athina has joined forces with Brown Hotels in order to deliver the program. The invited artists are provided by Brown Hotels, with a studio for the whole duration of their residency, located just a few hundred meters away from the best contemporary art galleries of the city.
Artists participating between April and August 2022 include: Emma Kohlmann (V1 Gallery, Copenhagen), Bradley Kronz (High Art Gallery, Paris), Tamo Jugeli (Gallery Art Beat, Tbilisi).
